Public transport

U35 Haltestelle

All recommended hotels can be reached with the ticket "Preisstufe A". You will get a five-day-ticket at the registration desk together with your registration bag, so you only need to buy a single ticket to get to RUB (once) on Monday morning. Tickets can also be bought at the ticket machines at every station. There you can also buy single tickets or day tickets.

Each participant will receive a ticket for free use of public transport (subway, bus, tram) from their hotel to RUB and back for the full length of the meeting (October 10–14). It takes about 9 minutes from the central railway station “Hauptbahnhof” to the university by subway line U35 (direction: Bochum Hustadt). Please get off at “Ruhr-Universität”. Information on the public transport system in Bochum
can be found online.
