Development of our fleet
Measures to improve the DB Regional vehicle fleet include the redesign of interiors, the installation of passenger information and video recording systems, and repainting. A total of 445 vehicles were redesigned and modernized, mainly for the S-Bahn (metro) lines in Hamburg, Munich and Berlin, as well as the diesel networks for Nuremberg and Allgäu.
We are further focusing on the procurement of new vehicles for transport contracts won. A total of 41 new vehicles were delivered in the first half of 2021 (thereof five vehicles will be used via a rental model). Vehicle availability improved again in the first half of 2021. Delays and restrictions relating to the delivery of new trains did, however, occur.
