Apply for advance payment of reimbursement of fare losses on local and long-distance services

Service Description

The Federal Office of Administration (BVA) reimburses transport companies in local and long-distance transport for fare losses incurred for the transportation of severely disabled persons and their accompanying persons.
They can receive an advance payment for the current calendar year amounting to 80 percent of the most recently determined reimbursement amount (final payment). The advance payment is paid half on July 15 and half on November 15.
Those who have already received refunds from the BVA can apply for an advance payment:

  • Transport companies
  • transport associations
  • Local transport organizations

If you have switched from state reimbursement to federal reimbursement, in exceptional cases you can receive an advance payment based on your last final payment notice.

You cannot receive advance payments.

You must repay the advance payments if you do not submit the required proof by the deadline.
