Environmental measures

  • Sustainable Railway Station: Together with SNCF Gares&Connexions, we have developed a charter in which we define which criteria a station should meet in planning, construction and operation in order to be considered ­sustainable. It was signed in June 2023.
  • Bike+Ride Initiative: The Bike+Ride Initiative ­supports municipalities in creating additional spaces to leave bicycles at stations nationwide. Since the start of the program in 2019, more than 15,000 parking spaces were implemented by mid-2023. Coordinated concepts are available for more than 50,000 parking spaces. Since 2021, we have advised over 70 municipalities on the implementation of bicycle parking garages at train stations via the “Information Center for Bicycle Parking at the Train Station.”
  • DB Rad+ app: With the DB Rad+ app, we promote intermodal travel chains combining bicycle and railway. Cyclists collect cycling kilometers in participating cities and can redeem them digitally from traders from the region and at the station in return for discounts and premiums. Since the start in April 2023, more than 3 million km have already been cycled in Berlin, with over 7 million km nationwide. Freiburg has also been involved since July 2023. Other cities are expected to follow in 2023. With the mobility data, the app provides a planning basis for the municipalities in order to further develop their bicycle infrastructure in line with their needs.
  • DB Radfix: In 2022, our repair service DB Radfix was opened at Berlin Südkreuz and Karlsruhe Central Station was introduced. This makes it easy to book repairs and maintenance for bicycles online. 2023 additional locations have been added with the main railway station Freiburg and Hamburg-Bergedorf. More are planned.
  • Energy Management System: In 2023, we are implementing energy-saving measures, such as the conversion to LED, optimization of control technology or reduction of heat demand. In addition, measures for climate­-friendly heat supply will be backed up by planning and implemented.
