Disabled people

Who is entitled to the discount for disabled people?

Permanent residents in the HSL area whose mobility is impaired owing to a permanent injury or chronic disease are, under certain conditions, entitled to reduced fares. Wheelchair users do not need a ticket on HSL public transport. Your companion can travel for free with you, provided you have a Companion Pass.

The discount entitlement is stored on the Travel Card. The discount is applicable to regional season and value tickets as well as internal season and value tickets. The discount is 25 % (discount group 1).

Eligible disabilities: 

  • Injury of lower limbs, back or spinal cord, at least severe (disability category at least 11)

  • Brain injury or developmental disability, at least severe (disability category at least 11)
  • Another reason for impaired mobility, at least severe (disability category at least 11)
