Murnau – have been Attempts to establish in Murnau, a local bus, it is in the past. However, this was never accepted properly. Now it is to succeed with a modern concept that is so far in upper Bavaria is unique: The market town bringing a flexible variant to the Start, using the possibilities of digitisation. The vehicle is no longer rattles after a rigid timetable, predetermined stops, but is flexible and can be via an App or telephone in the entire town area ordered.

"The fixation on the Car in a cul-de-SAC", is Ökodemokrat convinced Beuting. The demand-oriented local bus service to make the transition palatable – for two euros per journey. "This is affordable," says Beuting. It is also important to integrate public transport better with each other – for example, Bus and train. And the town hall boss is already thinking one step further: The new achievement could be, his Vision, in a few years, in the entire Blue country.
The concept of the Murnauer a Startup company, Omobi, which specialises in mobility solutions and in order to market the local bus operates has developed (we reported). These controls, around 200 virtual stations. A customer has ordered a Tour, calculated by an intelligent algorithm is used, an application of the Berlin software company door2door – the optimal Route, and bundles the requests of other passengers to bring all destination as quickly as possible.

praise comes from Munich: "The market shows the innovativeness of the local authorities and companies in public TRANSPORT", declared according to a press release Bavaria's Minister of transport, Kerstin Schreyer (CSU). It was the third offering of this type in rural areas in Bavaria. Comparable to there is yet in Freyung and Hof.
Rainer Paschen, the Chairman of the Murnauer seniors Advisory Committee, is satisfied: "We are convinced of the benefits of the new transport offer." However, his body would have seen a lower or equal to a Free-Fare better.
A drop of bitterness remains: The project supports the state financially, it will remain a loss-making business. Each year, 350 000 euros total cost. The municipality calculated on the basis of a deficit in the amount of 200 000 Euro.
