The "Studikarte" is a personalized ticket for the entire railway network of the Karlsruhe Transport Authority (Karlsruher Verkehrsverbund - KVV). Upon presentation of the KIT-Card and the KVV warrant it is available at the International Student Center in the foyer of the dining hall at Adenauerring, at KVV service centers and at train stations.
In combination with the KVV warrant, the KIT Card can also be used as a ticket in the entire KVV network. Unlike the Studikarte, it is only valid between Monday and Friday from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. and on weekends and holidays around the clock.
The KIT hydrogen buses provide a fast connection between Campus South, Campus East, and Campus North.

Bicycle and E-bike Sharing
