Events after the balance sheet date

Awarded tender for regional transport

  • DB Regional’s bid was accepted for batches 2 and 3 of the tender awarded for extensive regional transport services, including in particular the Federal states of Ber­lin and Brandenburg (Elbe-Spree network). One of the conditions of the tender was that no more than two batches could be awarded to a single provider. In the long term, we will be able to slightly expand our performance volume.
  • DB Arriva was awarded its largest rail transport contract to date in the Czech Republic and from December 2019 will be operating four regional lines. The three-year contract with a value of € 45 million includes the option to ex­­­­tend for up to two years. It will use 27 diesel railcars taken over from DBRegional and modernized.
