When hvv switch launches we’ll be offering a range of HVV tickets. You’ll also be able to book the MOIA shuttle service using the hvv switch app. We’re currently working on integrating the first car-sharing provider. Other mobility services are also in the planning stage. Looking ahead, the aim of the new app is to enable you to make simple and smart use of all mobility services available in Hamburg.
At the moment you can only pay via PayPal when you use the hvv switch app. No other methods of payment are currently accepted. It is, of course, not possible to pay by cash when using the app.
Unfortunately not. At the moment you can’t buy or make use of hvv season tickets in the hvv switch app. If you’d like to buy a hvv season ticket you can do this using the other main hvv app.
The existing switchh subscription, i.e. the 8 euro 90 savings package, will be discontinued on 28.02.2021.
A so-called MOIA stop is a virtual stop. It isn’t marked in any visible way for pedestrians and can only be viewed on the map in the hvv switch app where it is shown as an address. Since the address of the stop is displayed in the hvv switch app, you can use the app to find it. The map will also show you though whether or not you’re in the right place. These stops can be found throughout MOIA’s service region in Hamburg. The walking distance from anywhere within this region will usually be no more than 250 metres. The stops are clearly defined. MOIA drivers aren’t able to take you and other passengers directly to your front door like a taxi would.

Yes, that’s no problem. You don't have to be on the MOIA shuttle yourself. If you’re booking for a minor though, please note the information about the minimum age for using MOIA. Please also note that you’ll need to pass on all the necessary information to the person travelling that they’ll need to use the MOIA service. This will include the pick-up time, the location of the pick-up point, the drop-off point, shuttle number, etc.
