Go-Ahead Bavaria good to go


Go-Ahead Bavaria has been granted a train operator’s license by the Bavarian State Ministry for Housing, Building and Transport.

As a result, Go-Ahead Bavaria (Bayern) can now press on with plans to run train services from Munich via Memmingen to Lindau from the end of 2021, on behalf of the Bavarian Railway Company and the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Transport.

In the following year, it will add regional routes to its network around Augsburg, including routes to Munich, Ulm, Donauwörth and on to Aalen and Würzburg.

The company will be procuring 78 modern electric multiple units and will grow to about 400 employees.

Bastian Goßner, the commercial director of Go-Ahead Bavaria, expressed his delight over the news: “This license is another important step; we are on the right track and our team is committed to delivering services.

“I am confident that, from December 2021, we will be able to offer passengers, and the region, safe, reliable and comfortable rail transport.”
