Environmental measures

  • The Bike+Ride campaign no. 156 is intended to create up to 100,000 additional bicycle parking spaces nationwide, thereby initiating the sustainable expansion of the Bike+Ride infrastructure. More than 40 facilities with a total of more than 5,000 parking spaces have been constructed to date. In addition to two-tier bike rack systems, roofs and collective locking systems are now also accessible. There are complete concepts with agreed and, where necessary, approved spaces for more than 30,000 parking spaces. The municipalities are financially supported by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (Bundesministerium für Umwelt Naturschutz und nukleare Sicherheit; BMU) and we provide operational support with space testing and rent-free licensing.
  • With the Rad+ app no. 110, we promote intermodal travel chains combining bicycle and railway. The app counts the number of kilometers cycled within an area of action, and these can be redeemed for discounts and rewards from retailers in the region and at the station. The app also rewards cyclists by counting how many kilometers have been collected in total by all users. Following the launch of Rad+ in 2020 at Ahrensburg and Freising stations, the app was rolled out in seven other German cities in the first half of 2021.
  • About 60,000 t of waste is produced at our stations and on trains every year. Frequent errors in bins used by passengers make it difficult to separate recyclable materials and recycle them. For this reason, we are converting about 6,000 waste bins in stations and long-distance trains from the current four-bin separation to two-bin waste separation. To ensure that the waste is properly separated, 25 certified disposal companies carry out the sorting. This allows 85% of the waste to be retained as cleanly separated materials for recycling.
