After requests for the local bus were received from three parliamentary groups - Greens, FWG and SPD - Mayor Schmid (CSU) wanted to eliminate an information deficit.
- The information section begins with a quiz.
Location promoter Eva-Maria Schmitz recalls the three lines on which the local bus curves through the municipality: According to this, there is a blue line that leads north towards Föching and into the north industrial area.
A red one that goes to the east industrial park.
And a green direction Hartpenning.
Apart from that, there were supra-regional connections of the RVO that cross the town.
“What are they?” Asks Schmitz.
Simon Ammer (SPD) tries.
But nobody can really answer it.
Schmitz helps: the number 9568 towards Otterfing, the 9553 towards Waakirchen, the 9566 towards Warngau and Gmund and the 9561 towards Miesbach.
After three parliamentary groups - Greens, FWG and SPD - had submitted applications for the local bus, Mayor Christoph Schmid (CSU) wanted to eliminate “an information deficit”.
Together with Schmitz, he now presented the most important key data on the local bus to the transport committee.
As reported, Markt Holzkirchen - or its municipal works - handed over responsibility for the local bus to the district this year.
This will take over the tender, which will decide how things will continue from autumn 2022.
As is well known, the community wants to improve the local bus, because: "I don't like it the way it is now," repeated Schmid.
The number of users is too low.
By the end of the year, the municipality must inform the district of its wishes for the tender.
“The basic structure should be in place by then,” says Schmid.
Later you can turn to smaller screws.
In view of the tight deadlines, the FWG wanted to know “where we are right now,” said parliamentary group leader Torsten Hensel.
In its application, the FWG asked that employees from the district office be invited to the committee.
According to Schmid, however, department head Peter Schiffmann could not have said anything else than Schmitz.
"We asked the citizens sufficiently," said Schmid, referring to the Greens' proposal, which is precisely what is required.
The citizens were heard as part of the district's local transport plan, the “Clean on the road in Holzkirchen” survey conducted by Mobilitätswerk GmbH and the modal split study, which is still ongoing.
The local transport plan suggests an expansion of the local bus.
The aim is to connect Oberlainder, the Warngau industrial park Birkerfeld and the Kreuzstraße S-Bahn station.
Here you are in talks with the mayors from the other northern communities, added the town hall chief.
Mobilitätswerk GmbH recommended, among other things, an express line that whizzes from Holzkirchen train station to the north industrial area in ten minutes.
“We have to add costs to all of these ideas,” explained Schmitz.
Only when these are established will he want to present the results to the local councils, said Schmid, referring to the Greens' proposal.
These had requested that the committee be included in the tender.
For example in the form of an exam.
The FWG would like to “think more and not just give it a go,” said Hensel.
After a retreat, the consensus in a vote is certainly greater, added Karl Bär (Greens).
Schmid does not want to leave the local council out, but emphasized: “There is no time to build in the favorite stops of every local council.” It was similar when the local bus was introduced in 2007.
“The bus has become so attractive that nobody can use it,” he said bitterly.
The aim is to present the concept to the local council in four weeks.
When asked by Ammer, Schmitz explained that the district's planned entry into the MVV would be taken into account in the tariff system.
Schmid emphasized that it would not be cheaper for the community that pays for the local bus.
Even higher tariffs could not compensate for that.
Hensel came up with the idea of an on-call bus system.
Bär suggested involving Sachsenkam, and Albert Kraml (CSU) asked: “Can you also order smaller buses?” For less frequented routes.
“That's a good question,” said Schmitz, who noted everything.
Kraml also suggested knocking on Bosch for electric buses.
So there is a lot to do.
