Integrated Interim Report 2019 – Germany needs a strong rail system

Customer and quality

New products and service concepts

  • We are equipping the Intercity fleet with free Internet access. Testing of the first WiFi-equipped Intercity cars has been underway since mid-March 2019.
  • New service available in the travel information on and in the DB Navigator app: a digital display shows the likely capacity utilization for every longdistance train for the next 28 days. This is to make it easier for customers to shift their reservation to a train that is less in demand or to reserve seats early.
  • The S-Bahn (metro) in Stuttgart is developing the new Park+Ride app in cooperation with the start-up AIPARK. Through forecasts regarding parking space capacity utilization, the app shows whether it makes sense to leave the car at a certain location and provides navigation to empty parking spots with a seamless connection to local public transport.
  • The S-Bahn (metro) in Stuttgart is starting day trip and event service “car-free leisure time” together with naturtrip. The S-Bahn (metro) plans to make the attractive offers provided by the local public transport during offpeak hours more visible with this cooperation.
