DB Regional’s bid was accepted for batches 2 and 3 of the tender awarded for extensive regional transport services, including in particular the Federal states of Berlin and Brandenburg (Elbe-Spree network). One of the conditions of the tender was that no more than two batches could be awarded to a single provider. In the long term, we will be able to slightly expand our performance volume.
