moBiel (Bielefeld, Germany)

Providing mobility services for 325,000 inhabitants of Bielefeld and a further 125,000 in the surrounding region, moBiel is the biggest public transport provider in the German region of Eastern Westphalia. moBiel is a city-owned operator and partially the owner of the public transport infrastructure. Four light rail lines form the backbone of the network and pass under the city centre through a tunnel section with seven underground stations. The bus network is formed by 79 lines.

moBiel aims to increase passenger numbers from today’s 56.5 million passengers to 100 million per year by 2030. This ambitious goal should be reached with new low-floor tramway lines and line extensions.
