In the middle years of this decade, the German rolling stock market was quiet. The big post-reunification boom in orders in the 1990s was followed by a lull, as the German government sought to rein in public spending and prepare Deutsche Bahn AG for privatisation.
The market for regional passenger transport in Germany has changed tremendously during recent years. Liberalisation began in 1996 with the law to regionalise local transport. New competitors emerged and quickly gained a substantial market share. Currently, however, the market is facing some major challenges. Competition is becoming more intense, the amount of tenders will soar while the government funding level will decrease. This will lead to prices going down, a challenge DB Regio and our competitors must meet.
