Ukrainians who found refuge in Germany could previously buy a ticket for €9. These were discounted tickets and such a special offer ended in September. Currently, the German government has set a new single ticket price of €49.
Today, the price of a discount ticket for Ukrainians in Berlin with a Berliner Pass is €28.50.

Discussions on all technical issues have already been completed, so the government plans to introduce a new nationwide €49 ticket from January 1, 2023. The new "€49 tickets" will be financed by the federal government, allocating €1.5 billion per year. However, Berlin considers the price of 49 euros too high and plans to develop its strategy to simplify the purchase of tickets.
