At the end of the year 2021, Transdev subsidiary Württembergische Bus-Gesellschaft mbH (WBG) in Germany was awarded a contract as subcontractor for a new bus route in the transit network in Stuttgart. From December next year, WBG will operate the articulated buses between Korntal – Weilimdorf – Giebel.
For this contract the annual mileage is 390,000 bus kilometers. With the newly won contract, WBG will operate 55 buses in the VVS in the future.
The new line complements our existing services in the VVS very well and will be managed from WBG’s Ludwigsburg location.
Friedrich Boehringer, WBG Managing Director
He is particularly pleased with the award of the contract, as the quality requirements in Stuttgart’s public transit system are particularly high, as evidenced by the bus fleet to be used, which includes a combination of diesel hybrid vehicles and one electric articulated bus.
The new SSB contract confirms that with the right combination of costs and quality, success can be achieved even in a competitive environment.
