Deutsche Bahn withdraws Touch&Travel product

Tuesday 11 October 2016 | 17:30 CET | News
Deutsche Bahn announced that it will offer its Touch&Travel check-in/check-out system to other travel companies and transport groups for integration with their own systems and apps. As a result, Deutsche Bahn will withdraw Touch&Travel as a product and own brand from 30 November, with DB customers able to use the app for journeys until then. After this date, they will have to use alternative ticketing apps.
