around 7.8 million people over an area of more than 7,300 km², approximately 15,300 km of route network and 1.2 billion passengers a year – the VRR stretches from the Lower Rhine to the eastern Ruhr Area and is not only the transport association with the highest number of residents in Europe, but may rightly call itself the largest local transport conurbation.
39 transport companies form the backbone of the association and have to provide considerable services every day in order to cope with the approximately 289 million km that covered annually by our rains and busses.
At the Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Ruhr we are committed every day to making your trips by bus and rail as pleasant and easy as possible.
Just enter your point of departure and your destination – our Journey Planner will find the fastest way. Plus you'll get all the information you need for your trip, including maps of most train stations and stops.
