Fahrkarte v. Tickets

Courtney-F

When is it okay to use "Tickets"? Seems like I've only seen "Fahrkarte" used for the train and tram. Are all other tickets "TIckets"? Is it okay to use "Tickets" on the train or tram?? Thanks

Hi Courtney, Fahrkarte and ticket have the same meaning and you will be understood if you say ticket instead of 'Fahrkarte'. Fahrkarte is a specification meaning ticket to drive=fahren. There are different tickets for metro and bus. There is for example die Monatskarte=monthly ticket and die Tageskarte=the day ticket where 'fahr' can be left out. Hope it helps! Paul
