HAMBURG TRANSPORT COMMUNITY , AN EXAMPLE OF COORDINATION AND INTEGRATION IN PUBLIC TRANSPORT
The Hamburg Transport Community was established in 1965 to coordinate transport operations and integrate services. A joint fare system was introduced the following year. Public transport is no longer fragmented and services are broader. Planning is more efficient and can be better coordinated with regional planning. Competition has been eliminated, without hindering initiative on the part of the Community members, which include subway, urban, urban rail, tram, and bus lines.
