Digitalization and innovation
Expansion of the comfort check-in
The comfort check-in allows passengers with a mobile or online ticket to check themselves in and pass through ticket control without interruptions. The service is now also available on individual Intercity lines and in some cross-border transport. Until now, this was only possible in combination with a seat reservation in the ICE and with national connections.
Successive expansion of WiFi
Now that all ICE trains offer WiFi, we are also gradually equipping our Intercity fleet with free Internet access. The first Intercity cars equipped with WiFi have been in use since midMarch 2019. From 2021, our customers should be able to use WiFi in all long-distance trains.
