Stefan Jänicke, municipal councillor from Amperpettenbach, has handed over lists of signatures to the mayor of Haimhausen, Peter Felbermeier, which he had previously collected in the districts of Amperpettenbach and Westerndorf in order to fight for the preservation of their bus stops. As is well known, the MVV would like to relocate the stops.

Haimhausen - Jänicke thanked the mayor for his commitment. After returning from vacation, the head of the municipality had started looking for solutions to meet the wishes of the parents. Nevertheless, there was criticism from Jänicke regarding internal communication. He did not learn about the latest developments himself from the municipality, but from the local newspaper.

Felbermeier explained that the municipality has not yet found a solution. "We have found conclusive options," said Felbermeier about the current status, "with a little good will, it is also possible."

In Amperpettenbach, where the MVV rejects the round of the bus because the road conditions are too narrow, the passage through town for the bus is to be improved, for example by means of appropriate stopping bans, according to Felbermeier.

Possibility to turn around for bus necessary

In Westerndorf, on the other hand, according to Felbermeier, there is a need for a turning point for the bus, which is no longer allowed to manoeuvre backwards as in the past.

The mayor is therefore trying to find a solution in talks with farmers on how to turn over a large farm, he said. But "this is a difficult situation, because the farm has to be free with five bus trips a day," explains Felbermeier. Anton Bredl had the idea of erecting a turning hammer for the bus at the end of the village if necessary.

Florian Erath, the managing director of the municipality, reported on a telephone conversation with the MVV "that cost me an hour and 42 minutes of my life". The result: a rather muddled situation: MVV insists on its demand to move the two bus stops out of the villages for better accessibility.

"It's a mystery to me how the police can agree," Mayor Felbermeier wondered. He wants to continue to work for the preservation of the bus stops. At the moment, however, a solution to the conflict between MVV and the municipality of Haimhausen is not yet in sight.
