Upgrade for D-Ticket JugendBW

 We conclude the School year with some more good news for everyone who has been riding to school with the D-Ticket JugendBW:

For everyone who did not get aware about this through the quite extensive news media coverage: The French region Grand Est has decided to accept the D-Ticket JugendBW (as well as any other Deutschlandticket) during this July and August as valid ticket in their regional trains (TER) for ticket holder under the age of 28 who reside in Baden-Württemberg, Rheinland-Pfalz or Saarland (you need to carry your ID with you to verify your place of residence). Additionally the ticket is valid for TER trains connecting Grand Est and Gare de l’Est in Paris. The D-Ticket JugendBW is NOT accepted for urban transport as for example the trams in Strasbourg. In turn Baden-Württemberg, Rheinland-Pfalz and Saarland accept the Pass Jeunes Grand Est for residents of Grand Est in their regional trains, in this case including urban transport.
