Trendsetting solutions for the public sector are our passion
civity presents the results of the Baden-Württemberg public passenger transport report at the kick-off meeting of the ‘Future Commission on the 2030 Public Passenger Transport Strategy’
The federal state of Baden-Württemberg has set itself the ambitious goal of doubling demand for public passenger transport by 2030. In addition to the measures already in place to boost passenger numbers, the ‘2020 Public Passenger Transport Strategy’ is to be developed and coordinated together with specialists and the expert public over the next two years. The federal state government has now set up a Future Commission of experts.
bwtarif soon to include season tickets for commuters – civity excited about further milestones in its collaboration with BW-Tarif GmbH
The planned inclusion of season tickets for journeys using different modes of transport in the bwtarif ticket range has cleared an important hurdle. On 16 July 2020, 22 transport associations in Baden-Württemberg and BW-Tarif GmbH, which is responsible for fares in the federal state, in the (virtual) presence of Transport Minister Winfried Hermann, signed the contractual basis for the future bwtarif season tickets for journeys with different modes of transport. The new fare system can already be introduced with the new 2020/2021 timetable – and hence one whole year ahead of schedule.
