DB Long-Distance

DB Long-Distance offers customers comfortable and environmentally friendly travel within Germany and into neighboring countries. Regularly scheduled daily services with the ICE/ Intercity/EC fleet form the backbone of long-distance transport. Offerings are being expanded by island services to Sylt and Wangerooge. The long-distance bus service (IC Bus) was discontinued at the end of 2020. With the extensive expansion of European rail transport in recent years, attractive and fast train connections are now available on the corresponding routes.

DB Regional

The core service of DB Regional is to bring millions of passengers in regional transport to their destination every day in a punctual, safe, comfortable and environmentally friendly manner, and in doing so, to meet the requirements of the respective transport contract. Our services cover both regional rail passenger transport with regional express, regional railway and S-Bahn (metro) lines as well as regional and urban bus transport services. We therefore offer passengers comprehensive mobility services in major cities and metropolitan areas, but also especially in rural areas.
