Public Transport in Berlin: Six Models for the Future of the S-Bahn – Berlin

Wednesday, February 14th, 2018 | bitcoin updates


Who pays just the estimated 2.4 billion euros for the purchase of new commuter trains? The senate traffic administration now wants to find an answer with a so-called market investigation, which should start in the next few days. Then it will show whether there are enough interested parties and therefore also competition. The traffic management under the leadership of Senator Regine Günther (independent, for the Greens) has modified their concept after criticism from the coalition factions and now sends six variants into the running. Central component remains a "vehicle service provider", which probably procures the more than 600 double cars, called a quarter-pull, and maintains for 30 years also. There are variants in the financing. In the vehicle service model, the company also takes over the purchase of the trains. If necessary, there can be a "structural support" by the states of Berlin and Brandenburg, as long as this does not affect the debt. In the vehicle pool model, the service provider also procures the vehicles, but sells them after the faultless delivery to the countries. Berlin has already stashed 113 million euros for it. The countries then refinance the purchase through payments from the future operator to whom the trains are being lent. Other variants provide that the countries participate with a blocking minority in the vehicle service company – in each case with the option to be able to take over later all the shares. The purchase of the S-Bahn is checked. Here again there is the possibility that a company trains on own account buys and retains or sells them to the countries. There is also the option that the countries set up their own company for the enterprise or use an existing one such as the BVG or the Behala, to which they can leave the enterprise without European-wide announcement. Again, the trains would be procured through a company and waited 30 years. And finally, they wanted to check whether it is possible to buy the S-Bahn completely, said Günther on Wednesday. In the past, the railway company had always strictly rejected this. With this approach, the Senate wants to avoid being dependent only on one company – as most recently in the tender for operation on the ring. The countries had demanded that the operator also buys the vehicles. In the end, the S-Bahn was the only applicant who could demand monopoly prices, as Günther said. Even now, the S-Bahn can apply again, which is to be expected. In addition, it has the workshops. In the case of a change of operator, the successor would have to build their own plants or buy the power of the train.Gelten is the new model for the routes on the light rail and for the north-south connections.
