The first dial-a-bus service in Germany was launched in Friedrichshafen on Lake Constance 40 years ago. It was the only one with a fully flexible operation in Germany. Since 1977/78, flexible services have been established in various forms. Today, they are reaching their next level of development: called “Shared Mobility” or “Pooling-on-Demand”. For this reason, the Nahverkehrsgesellschaft Baden-Württemberg (NVBW) is going to celebrate the 40th anniversary and invites you to come to Friedrichshafen.
There are discussion groups, open conversations and an exhibition. They want to look back on 40 years of “dial-a-bus services”, ask what they can learn from the experiences of the past and how they can use it for the future. They welcome guests and speakers from local transport planning, transport policy, transport authorities, providers, IT suppliers and other interested parties.
