The city’s public transport operator, BVG, said its “Frauenticket” (Womens' ticket) will be available on March 18 only.
The Frauenticket, a day travel pass for the two central zones of the city, will be available for 5.50 euros, down from the usual 7 euros. It will be valid until 3am the next day.
“Of course this price gap feels unfair. But that’s the whole point: just for a day we just wanted to make the big pay gap feel tangible in ticket form. This is what women are up against every day,” said Petra Nelken, a BVG spokesperson .
