“Citizen bus around citizens” in rural Brieselang


Objectives

To implement their ideas, a new transport co-delivery scheme with volunteers had to be developed. It was quickly obvious that this would also require the foundation of an community association (in German law „eingetragener Verein“).

The citizens involved therefore had to gear up on the legal issues related to founding a new association, the tax implications, etc. The objectives of the association CitizenBus Brieseland (BürgerBus Brieselang e.V.) were defined as follows:

  • To promote mobility
  • To improve access to public facilities
  • To complement the offer of public transport
  • To connect local areas better with each other
  • To get citizens to deliver services for each other
