    I gues a txi to Bochum would be about Euro 60,-. However, there are several direct trains per hour from the airport to Bochum. Why take a taxi? If you choose to take the train however stick to RE trains, as they are cheaper. The more expensive IC and ICE trains are not faster on this trip. The best ticket to get would be a group ticket of price category C that is valid for up to five persons for the whole day on the whole network around Dusseldorf and Bochum (and in between). This ticket costs 28,10
    The Bochum tourism site does not mention a tourist bus. But there is nothing stopping you from using normal public transportation or just walking.

    Thank you for your reply the train info is worth considering, but the reason I asked about the tourist bus is because I am taking my mother who is 80yrs old and cannot walk very far, but as she grew up in Bochum and this is her first return there for over 40 yrs she would like to see as much of the city as possible, in the very short, two full days we will be there, thank you!!!

    I understand about the taxi. The price I gave is based on the distance and what I know about taxi rates in that part, so it's just an indication.
