DB Regio boss Jörg Sandvoss is hoping for new impulses for job tickets in the negotiations that began on Wednesday between the SPD, the Greens and the FDP on a future government alliance. "With a view to the climate and mobility turnaround, which will remain the main task after Corona, we also recommend ... promoting the job ticket even more," he told the German Press Agency on Wednesday on the sidelines of a three-day public transport industry meeting in Frankfurt on the Main river.

Frankfurt / Main - “Job tickets should be part of the employment contract like health insurance.” DB Regio AG is responsible for Deutsche Bahn AG's local public transport in Germany.

In Hesse, for example, many state employees already have a state ticket, and state tickets are also available for schoolchildren and pensioners - the "inhibition threshold" for using public transport is then much lower.

"Even if the ticket is only used five times a month, it pays off and it pulls people from the streets to the rails," said Sandvoss.

Since not everyone takes the train, a job ticket can be “offered much cheaper if an entire company makes it available to its employees,” stressed Sandvoss.

Some families who have previously used two cars may then do without a vehicle.

The prerequisite for this is an attractive public transport offer.

“That is why we at DB Regio continue to invest unchecked, especially in new trains.

But with a job ticket for everyone, the new federal government could quickly do something for climate protection - that could be implemented in January and would have a great effect. ”Dpa
