The 9-Euro Ticket Is A Great Initiative

If our leaders hadn’t demolished our public transit system in the name of profit

I should give our government a bit of praise for a change. The 9-Euro ticket is a very good initiative. The Sanctions on Russia give fossil fuel companies a windfall. Their profits are soaring. Meanwhile, many citizens cannot shoulder the burden of increased transport costs.

In response, our leaders came up with an idea. How about we give everyone access to very cheap mass transit in all of Germany. For a period of 3 months. From the beginning of the month, you can buy a monthly ticket for 9 Euros. The offer is valid for the next 3 months.

The ticket enables you to travel freely inside any German city you wish. And you can traverse the whole country if you rely on regional trains. For 9 Euros, that is an awesome deal. Subscribers like me get the discounted price automatically. I checked. Only 9 Euros were withdrawn from my bank account.

That is great for me. I already rely on mass transit for most of my transport needs.
