Transdev Germany’s subsidiary, Palatina Bus GmbH, in Edenkoben successfully defended and expanded its services in the Neustadt/Weinstraße area. The award of the 10 year-long contract that will go into effect in December 2022 was recently announced Rhine-Neckar Transit Authority.
As the result of the new contract the existing traffic in the Neustadt bundle of 1.7 million timetable kilometers per year has been secured and will also grow by an additional 1.3 million timetable kilometers per year.
Transdev subsidiary, Palatina Bus, will thus operate around 75 buses on 12 routes in the Landau – Speyer – Neustadt/Weinstraße city triangle as of the end of 2022.
We are all very relieved about this news and are pleased that we can continue the 110-year-old history of Palatina Bus at its headquarters in Edenkoben. Our employees are closely associated with the company, which is rich in tradition, and can now look to the future with confidence.

For Manfred Kienzler, Head of Business Development for the Bus South Region of Transdev Germany, success in this award was a result of local operational and planning expertise and valuable support from the entire project team.
Not only the price was decisive in this tender, but also the offer of added qualities and additional services such as vehicles and a marketing concept. This would have ultimately tipped the scales.
