Match ticket validity on cross-border services

As you probably know, Euro 2024 match tickets will be valid for travel on public transport within the relevant transport region from 6am on matchday until 6pm the day after. That applies to all forms of public transport except long-distance (express) trains.

Details of the respective regions are shown on my Transport Networks page.

For games held in the VRR region, i.e. in Dortmund, Gelsenkirchen or Düsseldorf, match tickets will additionally be valid for travel to/from some border towns in Holland, making them potential places to use as a base or as a 'staging post' en route from a flight into or out of Amsterdam.

The helpful team at VRR Customer Services have provided the following details of the trains - and also buses - on which match tickets will be valid for cross-border journeys. They are:

Regonal trains

RE 13 (Hamm – Unna – Hagen – Wuppertal – Düsseldorf – Mönchengladbach – Viersen – Venlo)  

RE 19 (Düsseldorf Hbf – Duisburg – Oberhausen – Dinslaken – Wesel – Bocholt / Emmerich – Emmerich-Elten – Zevenaar – Arnheim)
