The design of climate-friendly mobility for university staff plays a major role in the sustainable development of the university and affects it as an employer, place of study, research institution and social actor.
Employees of Carl von Ossietzky University have the opportunity to obtain a JobTicket from the Bremen/Lower Saxony Transport Association.
You can find the application forms on the administration portal.
Regarding the determination of the fare zone, the VBN states the following: "The fare depends on the fare zones you travel in or touch. The number of tariff zones can be determined from the course of the lines travelled. If you travel through two tariff zones, you pay fare level B, if you travel through three tariff zones, you pay fare level C, if you travel through four tariff zones, you pay fare level D, and so on. Journeys within a tariff zone and journeys from a neutral zone to a neighbouring zone or vice versa are considered to be price level A. Zones used twice are only counted once. A maximum of 8 zones are counted (price level H). Tickets at fare stage H entitle the holder to travel on the entire network."

For students of the Carl von Ossietzky University, the semester fee automatically includes a semester ticket for Lower Saxony and Bremen. The ticket is valid for second-class local trains. Between Bremen and Norddeich (Mole)/Emden Außenhafen the IC may be used. For the use of the Hamburg S-Bahn, the ticket is only valid on the line sections S3 Stade - Hamburg Hbf and S31 Neugraben - Hamburg Hbf.
The use of buses, trams and underground trains is not valid for the entire local rail transport area, but only for the VBN area. In addition, regular bus services can be used in the area of the Verkehrsregion Nahverkehr Ems-Jade (VEJ) and the Verkehrsgemeinschaft Landkreis Cloppenburg (VGC). For cities outside the area, e.g. Hamburg or Hanover, a ticket must therefore be purchased for the buses, underground trains, etc.
The semester ticket is combined with the CampusCard the University of Oldenburg.

The bicycle is one of the most popular means of transport in Oldenburg. The promotion of cycling is also essential for the sustainable development of mobility.
There are currently 3,990 bicycle stands available at Oldenburg University. Of these, 1,336 stands are located at the Wechloy Campus and 2,654 at the Haarentor Campus.
Additional covered bicycle stands at both locations are currently being planned.
A detailed overview of the location of the respective parking spaces will be posted here shortly.
Within the framework of the project "E-Mobile Oldenburg" (EMO) project, a comprehensive mobility concept is being developed for the city of Oldenburg, which should contribute to the targeted Climate neutrality 2035 mobility strategy.
As one of the largest employers in the city, the University of Oldenburg is involved in the process and is currently looking into the possibilities of implementing a charging infrastructure for electric vehicles.
Carl von Ossietzky University's vehicle fleet comprises 23 vehicles, including two with electric drives. For the years 2017 to 2019, figures on both kilometres driven and fuel consumption are available for the first time.
While 19 % fewer kilometres were travelled by car from 2017 to 2018, the figure rose again by almost 15 % from 2018 to 2019. If the journeys by lorry are included, there is a decrease of 6 % from 2017 to 2018 and an increase of 4 % from 2018 to 2019.
Nevertheless, an overall reduction of 10% in the number of kilometres can be observed in the reporting period. Although more distance was travelled by the university-owned vehicles, the fuel consumption of the fleet decreased from 2018 to 2019. This may be due to the fact that cars consume less fuel than trucks over longer distances or that less payload was transported.
In cooperation with the AStA, a survey was conducted among students to investigate mobility behaviour and satisfaction with public transport and the semester ticket. A total of 850 students filled out the questionnaire. Due to the Corona pandemic, the survey was conducted online. However, the survey participants were asked to answer the questionnaire based on their mobility habits from 2019.
The results show that the majority (53.8%) most frequently used a bicycle/e-bike to get to the university. A quarter of respondents (25.5%) used public transport such as bus and train. Students were also asked to indicate all means of transport used in 2019. Cycling and public transport again topped the list, while cars (passengers:*n) and motorbikes/mopeds were mentioned least often. Furthermore, 69.15% of students reported owning a bicycle, whereas only 32.32% either owned a car or had one at their disposal.
A comprehensive mobility survey to determine the greenhouse gas emissions from everyday mobility will be conducted for both students and employees in 2022.
