Overview of services
In rail transport – one of our core business areas – we advise and support our clients from strategic decisions to planning and operational issues. Based on a well-founded analysis of current and future transport needs, we develop service concepts for long-distance and local rail passenger transport as well as underground, light rail and tram systems. We consider expansion options of the available infrastructure as part of the long-term solution finding process. Depending on the issue involved, we also work out efficient timetable concepts in order to identify infrastructural bottlenecks.
In addition, we offer transport companies concrete support in the areas of tariff design, revenue sharing and revenue reporting. We advise on everything from conception and implementation to data collection and data maintenance.

Rail rransport as a means of mass transport
The rail system is geared towards public transport and, even more than this, is a “means of mass transport”. Its specific system advantages – reliability, speed and efficiency – only appear when corresponding bundling of transport needs is possible. At the same time, its specific weaknesses, such as its fixation on scheduled services, must be mitigated as far as possible through appropriate intramodal and intermodal integration.
Our customers in the rail sector include transport companies, infrastructure companies, cities and municipalities, public authorities, transport associations as well as national and state ministries in all parts of Germany.
