“Citizen bus around citizens” in rural Brieselang


Costs and savings

The average operating costs of the citizen bus is about €13,000 per year. About €3,600 can be covered by from ticket sales. The remaining costs are shared by the district authority and the local council.

A bus ticket costs €1.10 for the first 3 km, €1.40 Euro for longer journeys within the local area – once passengers buy a ticket for journeys that go outside the local area but remain inside the region-wide transport system of Berlin-Brandenburg (VBB) (including the whole of the city of Berlin), this costs from €2.50 to €2.80. So the local bus service is integrated within the overall capital city transportation system.

The bus drivers are insured through the volunteer insurance policy of the state of Brandenburg.
