All bets are off!
Is it going to work out?

Previously: >>1841229
It might be related to the problem mentioned in >>1885628 .
It's probably the easiest way to ensure the spread of ticket revenue is according to actual usage.
Not additionally dunking on Germans but distributing fare revenue between transport authorities has been solved in Switzerland for decades.
As a customer I can buy yearly/monthly/weekly/daily passes that allow me to ride any public transport, no matter the operator or network.
Obviously there's a lot to be done behind the scenes (and there are enough arguments) but passenger statistics even worked before portable computers with internet access were as widespread as they are today.
Nowadays the same applies to Austria.
Ticket vending machines are expensive. handling the cash from those machines is a lot of effort. An ap is much cheaper and easier for the company. The only thing preventing this is the baby boomer horde and their preference for analog solutions. Same goes for counters.
I know Germany wants to become a shithole but no need to not use existing infrastructure.
Well, looking through the official FAQ, the ticket appears to be "digital" in the same sense as the BaföG-Antrag is "digital".
The tickets are sent by email and the customer needs to print them himself.
Which, arguably, is a better solution than tying it to a phone or something like that.
This will probably necessitate a centralized analysis of ticket usage in order to prevent abuse, though.
So now in addition to paying for my ticket I also must pay a third party for the service if unlocking the ticket for me? And I must also spend additional time to find and requisition such a service.
I like using cash though. Also most of the banks I've looked at in Germany have a bunch of fees tacked on for having an account, I hate having to be so dependent on private banks.

There are a variety of country codes in transportation:
- CH vs. CH. vs. HB vs. 85
- A vs. AT. vs. OE vs. 81
- D vs. DE vs. D vs. 80
Had another look, and it's apparently based on the abbreviations designated in den Pariser Abkommen and the Wiener Straßenverkehrskonvention.
Those largely align with ISO-3166, but Germany (D instead of DE) and Austria (A instead of AT) are exceptions.
Schon mal vorbereiten. Das riecht nach Streik in näherer Zukunft:

At least the French trains more or less run on time when they're not on strike.
It may be due to mostly riding through-trains off the major axes, but I can't really complain about punctuality in daily life.
For Fernverkehr it's been quite a while since I didn't need to invoke Fahrgastrechte, though, but Deutsche Bahn has never objected to my claims, so there's at least that.

Watch out, though: No Fahrgastrechte during strikes.
I hate Germany so much it's unreal

I've been thinking about whether there are places in Switzerland (or maybe Austria) where you can use cable transports in the mountains to actually travel from one town to another, not including transports meant exclusively for skiers and snowboarders (like ski-lifts or chair lifts), so just ropeways/gondolas and funiculars.

The only one I found is from Wengen to Grindelwald, where you can take the ropeway to Männlichen and from Männlichen to Grindelwald. This works as an alternative to using the Wengernalpbahn. I've marked the ropeway route in purple, the railway in green.
I wonder if Arosa-Lenzerheide is doable by pedestrians, probably would be faster than taking the train down to Chur and the bus back up.
File: arosa-lenzerheide.png (3.26 MB, 1880x924)

Close but no cigar, there's a succession of five cable transports between Arosa and Lenzerheide, but three are chairlifts. If they allow pedestrians on them you could do it, which I doubt at least in winter with all the skiers and snowboarders.
Honestly, this seems like an instance where it would actually make a lot of sense, since it would offer a much more convenient connection than any conventional route.
Wikipedia says that all involved lifts are accessible for pedestrians in winter and summer, so I think it's doable, although it might be only in the Lenzerheide-Arosa direction.
Joint operation of skiers/snowboarders and pedestrians isn't that difficult, many places have lifts that even allow pedestrians on the way down.
Definitely more expensive than by train and bus though, if I may add.
Very cool, I might make that journey sometime.

If they allow peds in winter and summer then certainly you can go both directions, the lift is then apt for descending on the bottom. They should convert them to mixed gondola-chairlift operation, then you really could use them for proper travel.

Well that was to be expected, although I think the Wengen-Grindelwald route costs about the same, because Wengernalpbahn partly operates outside regular fares.
Bremen-Hamburg is a major axis. You were fucked throughout that year, no doubt about that.
Long distance trains pay more for high-priority Trassen, so obviously they get preferential treatment compared to your (mere) Metronome.
Which is reasonable, assuming the operator of those long distance trains does due diligence to prevent delays.
I'm not quite sure, that applies to DB Fernverkehr these days, and Flixtrain isn't exactly better, so maybe that should change to some extent.

By the way: The silver bullet is being an international train. Those enjoy absolute priority.
whats wrong?
Apparently shit is getting real.

Subscribers in Dortmund are starting to receive stickers to put on their old ticket until they receive their new one. (pic related)
That said, I think during the 9-Euro-Ticket days my chipcard-ticket wasn't successfully checked even once outside my home Verkehrsverbund.
I seriously hope, they know what they are doing, but it absolutely doesn't look like it.
>Die Warnstreiks finden demnach parallel zu bundesweiten Protestaktionen der Organisation Fridays for Future für eine Verkehrswende statt.

Don't they realize what the fuck they are doing there?
>Oh, by the way, don't go by car. It's killing the climate!
>*shuts down public transit in protest*
You are the very reason many car drivers don't want to go by public transport.
The self-proclaimed "left" and "environmental protection activists" are public transit's worst enemies.
It's really about time to get the "human component" out of traffic in general.
To be honest, for a warning strike you couldn't pick a better time to inconvenience more people without getting ATCs to strike as well.

Well, looks like a practical solution.
As long as they allow print-outs, it's probably going to work out fine for most people.
Good thing about the printable ticket is that it's accessible for everyone, even if you don't have a computer yourself.

Digital enthusiasts tend to forget the edge cases like disabled people, the mentally ill or homeless.
Using the printout solution, anybody can order a ticket for you, be it a relative, a caretaker or a CSR in a ticket agency and they can even store it in case you lose it (again).
The thing is also: Is there even an end user application to read VDV-KA cards?
If a user can't check the validity of his ticket himself (and without exposing his anus to some data sucking device), then that's a massive source of distress.
>Germany is reduced to using gimmicks to get people to use public transport because their trains are so utterly shit and people are so empoverished from high inflation and deindustrialization
Switzerland allows people to check their SwissPasses (nationwide NFC/QR-code transport card) at ticket machines found at any station.
As for remembering the validity, you have to look at the receipt (digital or on paper) or just attach a sticky note to the actual card if you want.
There is a lot to rightfully criticize about the state of German public transport.
This ticket isn't one of those things.
At most you could say, that the infrastructure is ill-prepared and that it's a bad fit to the systems that have grown over the last few decades.
I'm mostly worried about the increase of influence of politicians and activists. That could break a lot of things in the long run.
Also, Deutsche Bahn doesn't appear to realize what a massive risk this ticket is with respect to its BC100 customers.

How is /chad/ holding up?

Home office is a blessing is all I can say.
Swiss office is a blessing as well although it comes at a price.
Not really following the strikes, any possibility that it will blow up to French levels during summer?
Probably depends on how serious Russia is.
The current demonstrations in France appear to be in part incited by them as well, after all.
Ver.di and EVG did a coordinated effort to shut down Germany for a day.
They probably didn't expect, that most people are capable of doing home office these days, so their stunt has failed.

The railway from Le Locle to Les Brenets in Switzerland will be closed down at the end of the year.
This line runs 4.1km and connects to the mainline at Le Locle, but it is metre gauge so trains can't run through.
It has just two railcars, which are from 1950 and to my knowledge the oldest rail vehicles in regular service in Switzerland.
Let's not derail the thread, but...

Even without the discounts this could have been a great opportunity to convert some cager friends and make public transport more attractive for doing excursions with foreign friends, especially since the Tageskarte Gemeinde is going to be neutered as well.

When did Deutsche Bahn introduce that you can control your own tickets with the check in function? It pleases my autism that I don't even have to deal with the Schaffner anymore.

thanks, you just gave me PTSD

It's honestly quite impressive that German manages to be even more clumsy than English.
Well, to be honest, did anyone expect anything other than this?
Wouldn't have happened if they rolled out the Deutschlandticket on traditional paper tickets first and then introduced a unified electronic ticket in two or three years.
But of course the boomers in charge need to feel hip and trendy so the most efficient solution was discarded immediately.
>a unified electronic ticket
That already exists. There is a standard for that.
They simply didn't update their control devices in time for the new type of ticket.
Also, since every eticket is signed by the authority issuing it, you better be having a key infrastructure, that isn't a fucking mess to deal with.
News has it, there are even fixed units, that can't be updated anymore.
They had over a fucking year to prepare for fuck's sake. What were they doing all that time?

>boomers in charge
I'm pretty sure there were IT people that made them aware of the incoming mess in time.
It was fucking obvious. There were people on the web predicting this outcome since last year.
I'm afraid "removing boomers" won't fix anything, though.
It's people having the decisive say, that have no fucking clue what they are dealing with, and IT people being overly conscious to not step on some higher-up's feet.
Quoting from the published guidelines:

It simply wasn't expected of them to be able to control the tickets by May 1st.
I'm not quite sure how it counts as "Kulanz" towards the customer when the transport authorities are at fault, though.

It's a legal trick to cut down on people sharing tickets.
A person using his brothers BC is probably some small fraud, using the BC along with an official identification document of the brother, as stipulated by the BahnCard terms&conditions would be major fraud.

>this shit only happens in Germany.
Well, in the countries where the people causing that shit come from, trains wouldn't be stopped for them to be safely removed from the tracks.

lol no. DB is going to claim this as reason every time their trains are late, so they don't have to pay a refund anymore.
also I experienced the unauthorized people on the track in Italy this week, but fortunately this didn't impact my train. a bit shocking that Italian trains are more punctual these days than German trains.
>a bit shocking
Look at the absolute state of the German population in 2023.
I can perfectly understand why people don't want to ride public transport under those circumstances: They would be forced to take a good look at that absolute state.
Still doing it, day after day, but fuck the guys that say, this was fine. It's absolutely not fine, and they can only pretend it was fine, because they still live amongst their own. Most of Germany does not.
Been in Bavaria this week and for some reason the ICE was just strolling at around 110-120 km/h most of the time between Würzburg and Augsburg, why's that? Is the line too congested?
I mean I didn't expect a flat out 250 km/h the entire trip but the Hamburg-Kiel line is not made out for HSR either and ICE still go 150 all the way except for the stop in Neumünster
the line between Würzburg and Nürnberg is closed for construction works, so all trains have to pass through Ansbach. so as you said, the line is pretty congested.
I will never understand that. The seats in the old Tram2000 units were the comfiest. But I admit the wooden ones are still better than the shitty Cobra seats.

I rode the line last week and was surprised that on the IC4 Zurich - Singen both DB and SBB Stadler Kiss (S-Bahn Zürich variant spotted on Singen) were used.

>PTV: Germany needs another 4200km of high-speed rail infrastructure

It's more than we need to get regional traffic off S-Bahn infrastructure and the national traffic off regional infrastructure.
It's extremely reasonable to make infrastructure as flexible as possible, but long before you start approaching capacity limits, too heterogeneous traffic starts killing reliability hard.
It's more than -> It's more that
SBB just got new trainsets for regional services, and they're going to use them first on the Zürich-Schaffhausen line. Who knew Schaffhausen could have nice things for once.

I dislike the plain white livery. same applies to the refurbished IC2020. it doesn't look good on the double deckers.
and it's not like the exact same train is already in use between Zürich and Schaffhausen by SBB and DB. the worn leather seats in second class in the ex-Westbahn trains of DB, real classy lol.
>will be used on IR70/75
how about no thanks. I hate 1st class being in the middle of the train and plebs keep walking through 1st class. what are they smoking at SBB, effectively reducing seating capacity between Luzern and Zürich by using these trains instead of the currently used IC2020 and Bombardier Dosto?

>Siemens wins €2bn tender to supply new Munich S-Bahn fleet. Siemens will supply 90 new XXL 13-car S-Bahn trains. GERMAN Rail (DB) has awarded Siemens Mobility a contract worth more than €2bn to deliver 90 new XXL 13-car S-Bahn trains for the Munich S-Bahn, with an option for additional trains, following a Europe-wide tender. DB says the new S-Bahn trains will be the first in Germany to be fully accessible throughout. The trains will be 202m long and 3m wide, with seating for 480 passengers and total capacity for 1841 passengers. The first trains are scheduled to enter passenger service at the end of 2028. The new trains have a maximum power output of 7.8MW and a top speed of 160km/h.
nice that they are getting trains capable of 160km/h. 120km/h on the outer parts of the network always felt a tad slow.

This time in Switzerland. It's surprising, Switzerland appears to have Rastatt-tier problems with this.

Sozialdemokraten make me want to puke on the floor. Not the guys singing about what a bunch of lying pieces of shit they are.
They have thoroughly taught me to never trust politicians associated with a political party.

I hate FDP with a passion, but stop getting your "news" exclusively from taz, ND and Zeit.
Springer haven't improved much, but the rest of the German press has come down to their level.
You won't find journalism in the Germany of 2023 on paper that has gone through a printing press.
RIP to the train driver and the cleanup crew, always a risk that you'll end up changing jobs after such an incident.
It was an ICE, so DB problems.
EVG accepted the offer of the Schiedsgericht. GDL contract is up next, so there might be warning strikes again in autumn.
Oh my god
Was the train okay?
I sincerely hope, GDL realizes, it shouldn't overplay its hand.
DB may even be quite happy to get them out of the company.
Automated trains will fuck the drivers over even faster, if they found their own employer.

So why exactly was this thing necessary?
Why couldn't they just have trolleybuses cross the tracks without catenary? Or have the crossing isolated and switch between power systems depending on whether train or bus is crossing?

It just seems so utterly unnecessary.
But anon, if they went with the easy and obvious solution and didn't build this thing, how could the construction and consultancy industry have profited from it?

What does "Üst" mean? I keep seeing signs with >Üst <placename>
on this line.
Google wasn't helpful.
überleitsstelle, so a crossover to change the tracks
Oh, cool, thanks!
SBB with a new passenger record that is 3% higher than pre-covid for the first half of 2023. they transported an average of 1.33 million passengers per day.
ÖBB is expecting 20% more passengers than 2019 this year. DB is expecting 155 million passengers on ICE and IC trains this year compared to 151 million passengers they had in 2019. I couldn't find the numbers for regional trains, but with the 9€ last year and the introduction of the 49€ ticket this year go figure.
my own observations are that trains have more passengers in the evening and that even before SBB introduced the 99CHF/year evening flatrate for everyone under 26. I hardly find any free 4 seat compartment on my S-Bahn in the evening anymore. concerning DB, the ICE4 (12 carriage version) from Basel I took this year were usually full in 1st class once the train reached Mannheim.
>make everyone poor with terrible politics and mass migration
>more people use public transit because they're poor and lots of migrants
who knew
>limited to the poor
Don't think that you can apply your German experiences to countries with higher living standards.
after Dortmund Hbf, Munich Hbf joins the no trains party because of catenary damage. not even the S-Bahn through the Stammstrecke can move.
>in Laim hat ein Bagger ein Quertragwerk beschädigt, dadurch sind alle Gleise zw. Pasing/Abzw Kanal und München Hbf und die S-Bahn Stammstrecke betroffen. Also kein Zugbetrieb in München Hbf mehr.
oh boy, is the construction company liable for this?

aren't they fixing Hannover-Göttingen-Kassel-Fulda-Würzburg right now? next step would be to fill all the gaps between the single highspeed lines with new lines and start ignoring nimbys.
>start ignoring nimbys
That's difficult, when the nimbys are in charge of the federal government.
SPD and Greens are the biggest forces against the expansion of the German railway network.
>Nach jahrzehntelangem Streit haben sich der Bund und Niedersachsen über die Schnellstrecke zwischen Hamburg und Hannover geeinigt. Der geplante Neubau entfällt vorerst
are you kidding me? fucking traitors.
>fucking traitors.
Sozialdemokraten (und Grüne) eben.
Whoever thinks, they will make anything better for Germa/n/y, hasn't been paying attention.
RIP "Verkehrswende" - well, not all is lost, if you happen to think, a "Wende" is 360°.
