Since 1995, Rhein-Main-Verkehrsverbund/RMV (Rhine-Main Public Transport Network) has been an efficient partner within the overall transport system; as an integral part of the public transport system, it interlinks the whole region with its products and services. Its services in terms of sustainable improvements in and safeguarding of mobility in the Rhine-Main region are indispensable.
The federal state of Hessen, 15 administrative districts and eleven cities in the middle and southern parts of Hessen have joined forces; it resulted in a regional and local public transport network from one single source, which serves some five million residents in the region. The multiple tasks of RMV comprise transport planning, planning of the infrastructure, bid invitation and ordering for public transport services in the region, joint marketing, financing, innovations within the transport system and infrastructural management. More than 150 public transport providers have joined true to the motto: “one timetable, one ticket, one fare”. RMV wants to achieve two important objectives over the next two years – an increasing integration towards a single public transport system with a strong focus on its customers and the continuous improvement of efficiency and service. Economical proficiency combined with a high degree of environmental compatibility are considered to be significant aspects of sustainable mobility.
