Transdev Rhein-Main GmbH is to operate the bus line bundle East in Frankfurt/Main with the Alpina brand from December 2022 until the end of 2030 with the option of a one-year extension. This was announced by the regional transit authority Rhein-Main Verkehrsverbund (RMV) as the result of a competitive tender.
The contract, which involves up to 780,000 timetable kilometers per year, covers regular services in the eastern part of Frankfurt between Bad Vilbel and Offenbach. A total of eleven buses will be used on three routes. Around 30 employees will be needed.
We are pleased that we can further expand our bus business in Frankfurt/Main and take over additional lines. This further strengthens our position in the highly competitive market and secures jobs in the long term.
Heiko Schütte, Managing Director of Transdev Rhein-Main GmbH
