Transdev Group renews important bus contract with German Army

On the 29th of may 2018 was announced that Transdev Germany has successfully awarded the tender for the organization of transport on demand services for the German army Bundeswehr. The successful cooperation for nationwide charter trips with busses for BwFuhrparkService GmbH (BwFpS) can thus be continued for another four years. The new contract will start from 1 July 2018.

For more than ten years we have been a reliable partner of the Bundeswehr and have already carried out more than 180 000 trips on demand. I am therefore particularly pleased that once again we were able to prevail against very strong and important competitors (including DB and Flixbus) and that we can continue our successful cooperation in the area of bus logistics.

Tobias Heinemann, Spokesperson of the Management Board of Transdev GmbH

Since the contract started in March 2008, Transdev has already carried out more than 180 000 trips nationwide for the BwFpS.

This company manages the mobility needs of the Bundeswehr and orders up to 100 bus trips a day at the four Transdev regional centers. On peak days (e.g. Bundeswehr Day on June 9) there are even 630 bus trips this year. These are carried out promptly by a network of subcontractors and Transdev's own companies.
