History[edit] See also: History of rail transport in Germany While the railway network in Germany
Germany
dates back to 1835 when the first tracks were laid on a 6 km (3.7 mi) route between Nuremberg and Fürth, Deutsche Bahn
Deutsche Bahn
has been a relatively recent development in German railway history. Founded in January 1994 as a joint stock-company, Deutsche Bahn
Deutsche Bahn
was designed to operate the railways of both the former East and West Germany
Germany
after unification in October 1990 as a single, uniform, and private company.[6] There are three main periods of development in this unified German railway: its formation, its early years (1994–1999), and the period from 1999 to the present. At its creation, Deutsche Bahn
Deutsche Bahn
took over the abbreviation and logo DB from the West German state railway Deutsche Bundesbahn, and Kurt Weidemann later modernised the logo. Erik Spiekermann
Erik Spiekermann
designed the new corporate font DB Type. Originally, DBAG had its headquarters in Frankfurt am Main
Frankfurt am Main
but moved to Potsdamer Platz
Potsdamer Platz
in central Berlin
Berlin
in 1996, where it occupies a 26-storey office tower designed by Helmut Jahn

at the eastern end of the Sony Center

and named Bahntower. As the lease was to expire in 2010, DB had announced plans to relocate to Berlin
Berlin
Hauptbahnhof, and in 2007 a proposal for a new headquarters by 3XN
3XN
Architects won an architectural competition which also included Foster + Partners, Dominique Perrault
Dominique Perrault
and Auer + Weber.[7] However, these plans have been put on hold, and the Bahntower
Bahntower
leased for at least three more years.[8] 1999 to present[edit] The second step of the Bahnreform ( Railway
Railway
reform) was carried out in 1999. All rolling stock, track, personnel, and real assets were divided between the holdial subsidiaries of DBAG: DB Reise & Touristik AG (long distance passenger service, later renamed DB Station & Service AG (operating the stations). This new organisational scheme was introduced not least to implement European Community directive 91/440/EEC that demands access to railway systems free of discrimination. In December 2007, DB reorganised again, bringing all passenger services into its DB Bahn arm, logistics under DB Schenker and infrastructure and operations under DB Netze. The DB is owned by the Federal Republic. By the Constitution, the Federal Republic is required to retain (directly or indirectly) a majority of the infrastructure (the present DB Netze) stocks. In 2008, it was agreed to "float" a portion of the business, meaning an end to the 100% share the German Federal Republic had in it, with a plan that 25% of the overall share would be sold to the private sector.[9] However the onset of the financial crisis of 2007–08 saw this cancelled.[10] In 2014, the Jewish community of Thessaloniki demands that the Deutsche Bahn, which is the successor of the Deutsche Reichsbahn, should reimburse the heirs of Greek Holocaust victims of Thessaloniki for train fares that they were forced to pay for their deportation from Thessaloniki to Auschwitz and Treblinka between March and August 1943.[11][12] Members of the board[edit] As of 2016, the company currently lacks a management director. Other members of the board include:[13]

Dr. Richard Lutz (Finance & Controlling)[13] Berthold Huber (Traffic & Transport)[13] Ronald Pofalla
Ronald Pofalla
(Infrastructure)[13] Ulrich Weber (Human resources)[13]

Additional supervisory members for the sub-division DB Mobility Logistics
Logistics
AG include:

Ulrich Homburg (Passenger transport)[14] Karl-Friedrich Rausch (Transportation and Logistics
Logistics
Passenger traffic)[14]

Corporate subdivisions[edit] DB is organized as a business group and as of 2011 had over 1,000 affiliates, of which 287 were in Germany.[15] The DB group ( Deutsche Bahn
Deutsche Bahn
AG) is divided into five main operations groups: Arriva, DB Bahn, DB Dienstleistungen, DB Netze, and DB Schenker. These subsidiaries are companies in their own right, although most of them are 100% owned by DBAG. [16] Arriva[edit]

Deutsche Bahn
placed a bid in May 2010 for the UK-based transport company Arriva. Arriva
Arriva
runs bus and rail companies in 12 European countries. The merger was approved by the European Commission in August 2010, subject to DB divesting Arriva
Arriva
services in Germany
Germany
(these are now run as Netinera). The merger became effective on 27 August 2010.[17] Services in the UK formerly run as DB Regio
DB Regio
are now operated by a new subdivision of the company, Arriva
Arriva
UK Trains. It operates the Arriva Trains Wales, Chiltern Railways, CrossCountry
CrossCountry
and Grand Central operations. On 1 April 2016 Arriva
Arriva
became the operator of the Northern rail franchise. It also holds a 50% shareholding in London Overground Rail Operations and has lodged an application to operate services under the Great North Western Railway
Railway
brand. In November 2016, Arriva Rail London commenced operating the London Overground
London Overground
concession in its own right. The former Tyne & Wear Metro operations, already started by DB Regio
DB Regio
UK, ended in 2017. DB Bahn[edit] DB Bahn is the group that manages passenger travel within Germany. Originally called Reise & Touristik, this group is responsible for the managing, ticketing, servicing and running of German passenger services. The group also handles the information and customer service side of the operation.[14] This group is divided into two business areas: DB Fernverkehr and DB Regio. DB Fernverkehr[edit]

Main article: DB Fernverkehr DB Fernverkehr AG is a semi-independent division of Deutsche Bahn
Deutsche Bahn
that operates long-distance passenger trains in Germany. It was founded in 1999 in the second stage of the privatisation of German Federal Railways under the name of DB Reise & Touristik and renamed in 2003. DB Fernverkehr operates all InterCityExpress
InterCityExpress
and InterCity trains in Germany
Germany
as well as several EuroCity
EuroCity
trains throughout Europe. Unlike its sister companies DB Regio
DB Regio
and DB Schenker, DB Fernverkehr still holds a de facto monopoly in its segment of the market as it operates hundreds of trains per day, while all competitors' long-distance services combined amount to no more than 10–15 trains per day. Additionally DB Fernverkehr operates a few long-distance coach services throughout Germany, called IC Bus. DB Regio[edit]

A regional train of DB Regio

Main article: DB Regio DB Regio
DB Regio
AG is the subsidiary of Deutsche Bahn
Deutsche Bahn
that operates passenger trains on short and medium distances in Germany. Unlike its long-distance counterpart, DB Fernverkehr, it does not operate trains on its own account. Traffic is ordered and paid for by the Bundesländer (states) or their respective SPNV-Aufgabenträger (Regional train operation supervisors). Examples are the Landesnahverkehrsgesellschaft Niedersachsen (LNVG), responsible for train services in Lower Saxony
Lower Saxony
(except in the Hanover
Hanover
region) or the three Aufgabenträger in North Rhine-Westphalia: Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Ruhr (VRR), Zweckverband Nahverkehr Rheinland (NVR) and Zweckverband Nahverkehr Weatfalen-Lippe (NWL), the former also acting as a customer-faced fare association. Competition for those state-sponsored services is somewhat more fierce than for long-distance services. Some states have awarded long-term contracts to DB Regio
DB Regio
(usually 10 to 15 years), in others, DB Regio’s operations are decreasing, in North Rhine-Westphalia, their market share is expected to be lower than 50 %. DB Regio
DB Regio
rail services are divided into several regional companies:

DB Regio
DB Regio
Nord for Schleswig-Holstein, Hamburg, Lower Saxony, Bremen DB Regio
DB Regio
Nordost for Berlin, Brandenburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern DB Regio
DB Regio
NRW for North Rhine-Westphalia DB Regio

DB Stadtverkehr
was responsible for commuter services of the Berlin and Hamburg

networks and numerous bus companies. The subsidiary was integrated into DB Regio
DB Regio
on 31 December 2010. The two S-Bahn networks handled and still handle over 500 million passengers annually.[18] DB Netze[edit] Main article: DB Netze Since the end of 2007 DB Netze
DB Netze
has been responsible for infrastructure and operations, taking over from DB Netz AG. Its business areas including DB Netze
DB Netze
Fahrweg, DB Netze
DB Netze
Energie, DB Netze Personenbahnhöfe, DB ProjektBau and DB Station&Service. A further business area known as DB Dienstleistungen covers six different areas of operations: DB Fahrzeuginstandhaltung, DB Systel, DB Services, DB Fuhrpark, DB Kommunikationstechnik, and DB Sicherheit. DB Schenker[edit] Main articles: DB Schenker and DB Schenker Rail DB Schenker is the logistics arm of DB, as of 2008 it employed over 88,000 people, and was the largest European rail freight company.[19] Its two business areas are DB Schenker Rail (formerly Railion)[14] and DB Schenker Logistics. Other subsidiaries include Bax Global, Transfesa, and the former English Welsh & Scottish, now DB Cargo UK. DB Schenker Rail has its head office in Mainz, and is the holding company for the five (at 1 January 2009) national subsidiaries: Railion

Germany
and China via Russia. The California High-Speed Rail
California High-Speed Rail
Authority's (CHSRA) board approved on November 15, 2017 an early train operator contract with DB Engineering and Consulting USA. [22] The firm is the U.S. arm of Deutsche Bahn
Deutsche Bahn
AG. As early train operator, DB Engineering and Consulting will assist CHSRA with planning, designing and implementing the state's high-speed rail program. Train categories[edit] Trains in Germany
Germany
are classified by their stopping pattern:[23]

Fernverkehr (long distance trains), also Fernzug

ICE (Intercity-Express) for high-speed rail services between major cities and regions IC (InterCity) for long-distance trains connecting regions with each other. If the trains cross international boundaries, they are usually called EuroCity
EuroCity
(EC). Some EuroCity
EuroCity
services are operated by foreign state railways.

Nahverkehr (local trains)

IRE (Interregio-Express) serves regions and connects cities. IRE trains only exist in Baden-Württemberg
Baden-Württemberg
and on the Hamburg–Berlin route RE (Regional-Express) serves regions and connects cities RB (Regionalbahn) stops at all stations (except where S-Bahn
S-Bahn
is also available) and is the most basic train service S (S-Bahn) is rapid transit and most services stop at all stations. S-Bahn
S-Bahn
operate high frequency services and are comparable with, for example, the London Overground

Train categories no longer used include:

MET (Metropolitan) was a luxury train service between Hamburg
Hamburg
and Cologne. The two special MET train sets now used for IC and ICE services, still have a comfort level above the regular IC and ICE coaches IR (InterRegio), set between RE and IC was meant to connect cities and regions at a lower price, but also be used for local traffic. Replaced partly by IC, RE and IRE SE (Stadt-Express) operated as a mixture of RE and RB: trains skipped many stations in urban areas but made all stops in the countryside. Rebranded as RE and RB. In some regions, such as Rhine-Main (Frankfurt, Rhein-Main-Verkehrsverbund), the local transit authority advertised trains as SE. Internally, DB classified them as either RE or RB, but even DB trains display "SE" on their destination boards. This ceased in December 2016.

In the early days of DBAG, the most basic train categories, which were in use since the early days of rail travel in Germany, were also used:

D (D-Zug or Schnellzug, abbreviated from Durchgangszug) was the express train category and used to be the highest train category. It was replaced by IC and the even faster ICE. The trains of the SyltShuttle plus car shuttle service connecting the island of Sylt with the mainland are still officially referred to as D trains E (Eilzug) was the semi-fast service offering faster journeys than normal passenger trains but not at such long distances and speed as D trains, though there were some quite long running E trains. No direct successor, would be located between RE and IC N (Nahverkehrszug), the most basic form of train service stopping at all stations. When all local train services were vertaktet, i.e. operating at an fixed interval (mostly one train per hour), they were rebranded as RB

There are several other operators in Germany
Germany
which sometimes offer other categories, also, a local transport authority or tariff associations might brand the trains in a different way than DB does. For example, in the Nuremberg
Nuremberg
region, RE and RB trains are not differentiated, but called R instead. In some regions, such as Verkehrsverbund Berlin-Brandenburg, private operators do use the RE and RB labels, in others, such as Saxony, they do not. In online and print information systems of DB, private trains officially labelled RB and RE by their operators, might get a different label, for example "ABR" for trains operated by Abellio, though on platforms, trains and maps or timetables issued by the local transport authority overseeing regional train services, these abbreviations usually do not appear. Codeshare agreements[edit] In conjunction with Emirates, China Airlines, TAM Airlines, Biman Bangladesh Airlines, and Lufthansa, Deutsche Bahn
Deutsche Bahn
operates the AiRail Service between Frankfurt Airport
Frankfurt Airport
and Cologne/Bonn, Düsseldorf, Freiburg, Hamburg, Hanover, Mannheim, Munich, Nuremberg, and Stuttgart. Deutsche Bahn
Deutsche Bahn
has the IATA
IATA
designator 2A.[14] Tickets[edit] DB offers two different pricing models:

The Flexpreis (originally Normalpreis): gives full flexbility, i.e. all trains on the given date can be used on the chosen route The Sparpreis is the cheaper, advanced fare. Prices for long-distance journeys start as low as €19.90, but Sparpreis tickets are only valid on ICE, IC or EC trains noted on the ticket.

Local trains (S, RB, RE, IRE) also accept local tickets issued by local transport associations, which can also be used on buses, trams or metros. DB offers concessionary fares with the Bahncard, which is available as Bahncard 25 (giving 25 % discount on Flexpreis and Sparpreis), Bahncard 50 (giving 50 % discount on Flexpreis and 25 % on Sparpreis) and Bahncard 100 (giving unlimited travel on all of Deutsche Bahn
Deutsche Bahn
trains, most private train companies and also in many local transport associations). Other special tickets, such as Interrail
Interrail
or the Schönes-Wochenende-Ticket, giving unlimited journeys on local trains and in many transport associations, are also available. See also[edit]
