Functional impairments and disabilities
Guide card and ID card from the Danish Association of the Blind
The blind and visually impaired with a valid ID card from the Danish Association of the Blind (Dansk Blindesamfund) and their guide can each travel on a child’s ticket (single trip ticket, excess fare, one-day ticket, airport buses and 24, 48 and 72-hour tickets). Under the scheme, it is also possible to use children’s multi-trip tickets*) in the Midttrafik app. The discount is not available when purchasing a transit ticket.
*) Does not apply for PendlerKlip, which is a special commuter product.
The same rules apply to persons with impaired mobility and mentally handicapped persons with a valid ID card (guide card) issued by the user service at Disabled People’s Organisations Denmark (DPOD).
Guide dogs and service dogs may be taken on board free of charge. This also applies to dogs that are being trained and which are wearing a yellow vest marked with a butterfly and ‘Dansk Blindesamfund’ (Danish Association of the Blind).
If you are disabled, blind or visually impaired, you can purchase a Rejsekort Personal with the customer type ‘Disabled Person’. This Rejsekort allows you to travel at half the normal price for adults.
