A recently adopted amendment to the Passenger Transport Act in Germany will certainly shake up the German long-distance services market. Since April 2012, MeinFernbus has transported 95,000 passengers from point A to point B on its two long-distance lines alone. Tickets for the long-distance coaches are generally much cheaper than the corresponding rail options and, in terms of environmental friendliness, buses are clearly ahead..
With its new long-distance line between Frankfurt and Leipzig, Ohly & Weber Reisedienst GmbH is branching out into long-distance regular service routes, expanding its range of travel services and classic regular service routes. Founded in 1932, the family business views this venture as an exciting and lucrative opportunity with plenty of potential for growth. The long-distance route is operated by MFB MeinFernbus GmbH, sort of the start-up company on the German long-distance travel market since being established in June 2011. MeinFernbus organises the lines together with currently eleven mid-sized bus companies. The three new Mercedes models from Ohly & Weber are thus part of six new lines altogether, which MeinFernbus is getting set to launch this November.
