Different prices for student and senior tickets

Mannheim District Court, judgment of 06.06.2008 - 10 C 34/08

The applicant is a student and feels discriminated against because her student ticket costs two euros more than the discounted senior ticket.

It should be examined whether this constitutes discrimination on grounds of age.

The action was dismissed. The different rates of student tickets and transportation for people over 60 years is objectively justified according to 1 AGG § 20 Abs. if the local transport service pursues with this the socially and economically beneficial effect of better utilization of the local transport in the idle times.
