buying weeklky train/transit pass

my wife and I will arrive at the Frankfurt airport and taxi to Mainz. we will be using a weekly ticket for train/tram/s-bahn travel. Does the Mainz hbf have a staffed ticket/information office or should I pick up the passes at the airport transit center?

Yes, Mainz Hbf has a staffed ticket office. For which area do you need your weekly pass? Mainz City, Mainz + Frankfurt area, Mainz + other areas in Rhineland-Palatinate? That makes a difference.

Understood. Plan to get zone 5 passes since we will be in Mainz, Frankfurt, Darnstadt and environs. Thanks for clearing up the where to buy question.

Careful: a weekly ticket Frankfurt-Mainz does not include Darmstadt. However, a Mainz-Darmstadt ticket includes Frankfurt. Same price. You can buy it at the airport from a staffed counter.
