Transportation: How to Purchase a One-Zone Extension Ticket in the DSB App

If you have a Commuter Card and your journey requires travel through one additional zone not covered by your Commuter Card, you can purchase a one-zone extension ticket in the DSB app. This is a good option if, for example, you have a Commuter Card covering zones 1 and 2, and you need to travel to zone 3. Please note that you must have a valid Commuter Card to utilize this ticket option.

1. To purchase a ticket, open the DSB app
2. Select ‘Commuter cards’ from the top panel
3. Select ‘Buy ticket extension for Zealand and islands’

4. Select the validity time (if you want it to start at a later time) or just continue if the ticket should be immediately valid. Make sure you have selected an adult ticket
5. Select ‘buy’

6. You will then proceed to the payment. Accept the terms and conditions and click ‘Go to payment’

7. Depending on the purpose of this journey, you can either send the bill directly to DIS by choosing ‘Invoice’ or you can choose to use your own Credit Card. If in doubt about whether this trip is covered by DIS, refer to the table below.

Invoice (paid by DIS)Credit Card (use for your
personal travel)
• Commuter Card (if you chose the Commuter
Card option)
• 500 DKK transportation stipend (if you have
the Semester Bike Option)
• Getting to and from Field Studies
• Getting to and from Study Tours
• Getting to and from external DIS classes
• Getting to and from DIS activities
• Visiting Host program: 4 return visits
• Homestay students: 400 DKK stipend to visit other DIS students in your Homestay Network
• Personal travel (i.e. going to a museum or the airport)
• If you are eligible for extra funds (i.e. Homestay, Visiting Host, Semester Bike students),
then use this option once you have spent your entire stipend

8. If the expense is covered by DIS, you must include the purpose of the journey. In the ‘Comment’ field, write one of the following to indicate the category of the invoice:

  • Commuter Card 
  • Academic 
  • Study Tour 
  • Homestay Network 
  • Visiting Host 
  • Bike Stipend 
  • DIS Event 

9. You now have purchased a one-zone extension ticket, which can be found on the home screen of the DSB app and also under the ‘Commuter card’ tab. This ticket allows you to travel within any one given zone, which is not included on your Commuter Card.
