    Tickets for Public Transport

    At registration, you will get a free conference ticket, which is valid from March 4-7. This ticket entitles you to unlimited public transport for a single person in the city center, to Garching, and Munich airport. At the day of your arrival you will have to buy a ticket in order to get to the conference site by public transportation. As a rule, public transport tickets have to be validated before you board a subway or a train. There are validating machines at the platform access or sometimes at the platform itself. Tickets can be obtained at vending machines at every subway or train station and at vending machines on board the buses and tramways. Please also see the MVV Ticket Navigator for pricing information.
