Transdev has announced that Transdev Rhein-Main GmbH has been awarded a new contract to operate the bus line bundle east in Frankfurt am Main from December 2022 until the end of 2030, with the option of an additional one-year extension. This was announced by the regional transit authority Rhein-Main Verkehrsverbund (RMV) as the result of a competitive tender.

The contract, which involves up to 780,000 timetable kilometres per year, covers regular services in the eastern part of Frankfurt between Bad Vilbel and Offenbach. A total of 11 buses will be used on three routes and approximately 30 employees will be needed.

“We are pleased that we can further expand our bus business in Frankfurt/Main and take over additional lines. This further strengthens our position in the highly competitive market and secures jobs in the long-term,” said Heiko Schütte, Managing Director of Transdev Rhein-Main GmbH.

Currently, Transdev Rhein-Main GmbH operates various route bundles in Frankfurt am Main and is the largest operator of electric buses in Frankfurt and the surrounding area. A further expansion of the electric bus fleet is planned.
