Deutschland Ticket for Students Uses Shibboleth
To provide a special Deutschland Ticket for university students, the Würzburg Tram Company uses Shibboleth. Shibboleth is a proven single-sign-on authentication system that is commonly used by universities and research institutes. Students have two options: upload their student ID card and wait up to 3 days for approval, or log in directly using their university account and have the system instantly check their enrollment status and buy the ticket. We expect about 14,000 students to access the system and depend on Shibboleth to check for authorization. Thanks to this technology, we can provide convenient and rapid purchasing of special Deutschland Ticket for university students through the MENTZ ticket shop.
