30 March 2009  •  Author(s): Michael Budig, Managing Director, VGF and Bernd Conrads, Head of Corporate Communications, VGF

Frankfurt is constantly in motion – a metropolis of 667,000 inhabitants, with approximately 588,000 people travelling to their place of work in the city and travelling home again in the evening. Each working day, approximately 305,000 people commute into and out of Frankfurt – thus making it Germany’s fifth largest city.

On working days, 23% of Frankfurt’s travellers use the buses and railways. The municipal transport company ‘Verkehrsgesellschaft Frankfurt am Main’ (VGF) operates seven underground railway lines, eight tram lines and – including the services of its subsidiaries – 31 bus routes, meaning that, in effect, each day its employees working in driver service, operational control, monitoring and maintenance positions ensure the mobility of its 500,000 passengers.
