Travel the entire city on a hired bike

Visitors to our city can now discover Dresden in an even more individual manner. The partnership between Dresdner Verkehrsbetriebe AG and the cycle hire system sz-bike (part of nextbike) means that you can explore the city on the Elbe in a flexible, independent way.

Get to know Dresden individually with the combination that best suits you:

  • Explore routes through attractive countryside
  • Leave the bike near a bus or tram stop and get a ride by bus or tram over longer distances
  • After getting out, continue to discover interesting districts by bike
  • What if the weather changes? No problem: leave the bike where it is and simply get back on the tram or bus. It's up to you whether you steer or leave it up to someone else.

Just the ticket!

With a combined ticket you can combine the advantages of cycling and public transport to best suit you. For one whole day you can use sz-bikes and our public transport vehicles as often as you like. Collect bikes from the pick-up points and leave them behind again as often as you like.

Use our tram, bus and ferry routes wherever and whenever you want. The combined ticket is valid on the DVB transport system until 4 a.m. the following morning, while sz-bikes can even be hired for 24 hours.

You pay just 10 euros per person for one day of almost unlimited mobility, saving five euros compared with separate one-day passes.

The combined ticket can be used on all tram routes, the city bus routes and the ferries over the Elbe within the city.
The sz-bikes can be taken on ferries. The ticket is not valid for S-Bahn city trains, local trains or regional bus routes.

Our subscribers enjoy other great advantages

Regular DVB customers can now stay mobile at any time, at a special price. With our subscriber's monthly pass and cooperation with sz-bike, we offer our subscribers another eco-friendly mobility solution: you can use the hired sz-bikes at especially attractive conditions.
So why not take the tram to an appointment then return at your convenience on an sz-bike? For you, the first 30 minutes are even free of charge! And you save a full 50 per cent on the standard charge from the 31st minute. Billing is per 30 minutes.
The bikes are scattered all over the city. Before pedalling off, simply register for free at www.sz-bike.de, charge your account with the minimum sum of €9 and get on your bike!
