    The same if using local trains because both cities are part of a public transport network (Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Sieg, short VRS) which unites all carriers in the region including DB's local trains. In other words, the same tickets are valid for buses, trams, underground, S-Bahn and local trains.
    Fast trains (ICE, IC or EC) cost more but there is no need to waste money on those, you'd save but a few minutes.
    The website of this transport network is here: vrsinfo.de/englisch/the-vrs/... (in English).

    You need a VRS price level 4 ticket for this trip. Single ticket is EUR 6,60. Covered are all means of local public transport as already listed in the previous answer. Fastest option among them are the regional trains (RE 5, MRB 26, RB 48). Than there are the 2 Stadtbahn (tram) lines #16 and #18.

    Not aware of any bus service between both cities. Not enough capacity and too slow. Please note that the express bus from Bonn directly to Cologne/Bonn Airport (CGN) requires a surcharge.
