National approval law


The operation of passenger services requires an approval in accordance with the German Passenger Transportation Act. The award grants an exclusive right. Therefore it is often the subject to legal scrutiny by unsuccessful competitors. The absence up to now of an amendment to the national regulations has led to uncertainty in the market.

The experts at Rödl & Partner currently provide consulting services in the following areas:

  • The role of the local public transport plan
  • Eligibility requirements and their fulfilment
  • The selection process where there are competitive applications (so-called award competition)
