I got a 60€ ticket? Confused

(3 answers)
By Sara Traveller January 23, 2018

I got a 60€ fine because I didnt have a ticket but when I tried to buy one from the driver on the bus, he said I didnt need one and the inspectors agreed.
I was riding from Spittel markt to Spandauer on the M48 bus.
Should I complain about the ticket or ignore it?

Ps: the only information they have of me is my name

I am suprised because I don't know why the bus driver would say that you don't need a ticket. Of course you do. Furthermore, I am suprised that the inspectors agreed but fined you anyway. Is there some crucial information missing?

This is what i saw and heard, i don't know why they would say that. But I think the station I was going to (Spandauer) had something to do with it

Sorry to hear that!
If I were you, I would ignore but be careful during the remaining time that you are there. I never bought bus/trains tickets during my trip but also got lucky that no one ever checked me. I was willing to take the risk.

If you're sure, that they don't have your address, than you can easily ignore it.
