Development of our fleet 4 Fleet and depot expansion To the Strong Rail strategy
In 2020, we continued to pursue comprehensive measures to improve our vehicle fleet. This includes, among other things, the redesign of the interior and the installation of passenger information systems. A total of 265 vehicles were redesigned and modernized, mainly for the S-Bahnen (metros) in Hamburg, Munich and Berlin, as well as the diesel networks Nuremberg and Allgäu.
We are further focusing on the procurement of new vehicles for acquired transport contracts. In 2020, a total of 184 new vehicles were delivered (146 thereof are used within a rental model).
Overall vehicle availability was again improved in 2020. However, there were still delays and restrictions relating to the delivery of new trains.
