Renowned for its integrated transport system, Hamburg is now concentrating on developing its S-Bahn system. The responsibility for the provision of public transport in the Hamburg conurbation is vested in the Hamburger Verkehrsverbund (HVV). This body was established in 1965 and is responsible for planning, marketing, and publicity, together with the organization and financing of public transport. There are eight partners in the HVV and it is they who operate the bus, express bus, tram, U-Bahn, S-Bahn and ferry services. The Hamburg conurbation covers approximately 50 km by 60 km (30 miles by 40 miles) and has a population of 2.4 million.
