“Citizen bus around citizens” in rural Brieselang


Outcomes

The citizen bus service came into operation on 10 December 2007 - it seemed just like a Christmas present to everybody involved! The bus runs from Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. and serves two routes.

Take-up by citizens has been increasing over time and is currently 45-50%. Older inhabitants cannot imagine living in Brieselang any more without the bus. We often get comments from passengers that “It is so great to know you are there when we need to use you” or “Now, I can even make a sightseeing trip around this area, instead of just staying at home” are two typical statements often heard from our passengers.
