2018 Integrated Interim Report – Departure into a new era!

Public road passenger transport

  • Slight increase in volume sold for scheduled public road passenger transport services in the first quarter (+1.2%). Both market segments – local and long-distance bus services – posted positive development.
  • FlixBus is the dominant provider with a market share of more than 90% and has moderately expanded its service following a consolidation phase. IC Bus is the third-largest provider with a market share of about 2%.
  • Slight increase in local bus transport in the first quarter (+1.0%) due to an increasing population and employment figures, especially in metropolitan areas. DB bus traffic experienced declines (5.7%) due to falling demand for rural local scheduled transport and adjustment of the supply portfolio.
