Digitalization and innovation
- DB Regional is undertaking a variety of measures to combat graffiti. Among other things, an app was developed to facilitate faster and more specific recording of graffiti, in order to clean trains more quickly and get them back onto the tracks.
- The Stuttgart region is the first metropolis fully equipped with WiFi in the S-Bahn (metro). The Stuttgart Regional Association and the S-Bahn (metro) are jointly investing nearly € 5 million for technology and operations, which is initially planned for six years.
- WiFi equipment is being implemented in many regions. On the Rhine-Main S-Bahn (metro), passengers can access the Internet free of charge on every train. The fleet’s WiFi equipment was completed in October 2019. It will start in the Munich S-Bahn (metro) in 2020. The Hamburg S-Bahn (metro) is also working on WiFi expansion.
