The Transdev Group is pressing ahead with the switch to climate-friendly drives. Nine more electric buses will soon be driving through Frankfurt/Main, making public transport even more environmentally friendly.
To make this possible, the city wants to extend Transdev Rhein-Main GmbH’s contract to operate bus line bundle A in the northwest and Gallus by one year until the end of 2030. In return, Transdev Rhein-Main will operate nine more electric buses on the routes.
Until now, Transdev has been operating the line bundle, which includes various metro bus lines, under the Alpina brand for a period of nine years until the timetable change in December 2029. With 25 Ebusco electric buses, the Transdev Group in Frankfurt/Main currently operates its largest e-bus network in Germany.
The nine additional electric buses are to replace further diesel-powered vehicles. This will enable the city of Frankfurt/Main to implement the urban electrification strategy on these lines much faster than previously planned, thereby saving additional climate-damaging carbon dioxide. Transdev Rhein-Main GmbH currently operates various route bundles in Frankfurt/Main and has around 220 buses in service.
