What is to do if an enno ticket machine is out of order?

In case of a technical malfunction of an enno ticket machine when there is no other ticket machine around, passengers should note the number and location of the malfunctioning machine as well as the point of time of the perturbation. Once the passenger gets on the train, he or she is supposed to look actively for a passenger attendant to explain the situation (ticket machine being out of order). Since the enno staff cannot verify the malfunction of the machine at that point of time, the passenger attendant will issue you a document as a proof of your report about the malfunctioning ticket machine.

The ticket machine does not accept any banknotes – what am I supposed to do?

The enno train-operating company (enno Eisenbahngesellschaft mbH) will verify the reported technical default. If the ticket machine was evidently not working, the passenger will just receive a payment notification of the amount of the regular ticket price. However, if no provable perturbation of the ticket machine could be detected, the passenger will receive a payment notification of the amount of an increased transport fee.

What do I have to do if I must pay a fine for travelling with an invalid ticket or without any ticket at all?

In case you have to pay a fine for travelling with an invalid ticket or without any ticket at all, you have to transfer the amount to the indicated account within the given term of payment. The increased fare will be reduced if you come to an enno service center or a DB travel center within the defined term to prove that you were holding a valid person-specific season ticket at the point of time when you were controlled. You can also send objections to the indicated address.

Yes, as long as a contract about the purchase and use of the semester ticket has been concluded between the relevant AStA and the metronom Eisenbahngesellschaft mbH.

Transportation of animals

Small and harmless living domestic animals (up to the size of a cat) that are transported in a closed container (e. g. transport box) comparable to a piece of hand luggage can be transported free of charge. The structure and material of the container must exclude any restrictions or annoyance for other passengers or items. The transportation of these animals is free of charge.

Dogs that cannot be transported in a transport box due to their size have to be kept on a lead and wear a muzzle. They need a half-price ticket or are considered as one adult person when travelling with the enno Niedersachsen ticket, the Schönes-Wochenende-Ticket or the Quer-durchs-Land-Ticket. According to the applicable provisions of the federal tstates concerning the protection against dangerous dogs, these kinds of dogs are not allowed to be transported in enno trains at all.
