Public transport operators co-operating in the HVV partnership

The advantages are obvious:

35 transport operating companies linked in an integrated fares system ensure smooth interchange between their various services on the basis of carefully synchronized timetables. An extensive network of lines and routes provides excellent links to all Hamburg districts and to those counties in the regional states of Schleswig-Holstein and Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony) which border the city.
