Public transport is important. We use it to go to work, visit friends, and for our daily business. Trains, buses and subways can be expensive. Transport companies created the Germany Ticket. This lets people use local and regional transportation for just 49 euros ($54) a month. The ticket is for all public transport in Germany except long-distance intercity trains. More than three million tickets have been sold.

The Germany Ticket is better for the environment. People will use environmentally-friendly trains and buses more. Germany's Chancellor was happy with the new ticket. He said it was easy and cheap. He added it would help Germany hit climate targets and be carbon neutral by 2050. A transportation analyst said more people should use trains and buses. Other countries may create a similar ticket.
