Apply for a supplement to the severely disabled person's pass with or without a token

If you are severely disabled, you are entitled, under certain conditions, to free transport by public transport or to a reduction in motor vehicle tax.

If you have a two-colour disability card with certain marks on it, you can apply for a supplement and a token with the help of this application.

They can thus take advantage of either free transport by local passenger transport or a reduction in motor vehicle tax.

In order to be able to use the free transport in local public transport, you must purchase a token for half a year or a whole year against payment of a deductible. The deductible does not apply if certain markers are present or certain social benefits are received.

Alternatively, you can apply for a supplement without a token instead in order to receive a reduction in vehicle tax.

For persons with certain markers, it is possible to take advantage of both the reduction of vehicle tax and free transport on public transport with the supplement with token.

If your supplement is damaged or you have lost it, you can request a replacement.
