From 2011 to 2017, i.e., within six years, increased the number of metro passengers in the BVG by almost 60 million. From 1926 to 1927, the number of passengers increased in the U-Bahn to 60 million in one year. How do you manage something like that?
A visionary man established a uniform tariff of 20 pfennigs for adults, 10 Pfennig for children and apprentices. The real trick is that this Tariff has been in place since the 15th century. March 1927 to Require, previously, had for each mode of transport a new ticket to be purchased. Therefore, the Berliners themselves long distances, and also with detours only with the Bus or the electrical hazards were, in order to save the money for the subway.
And who was this visionary man? The SPD-politician Ernst Reuter, the should be after the war, once the reigning mayor. In the summer of 1926 he had been to the city Council for transport appointed in a few months, he got into the Berlin traffic, he led the Berlin tram-operating company, the railroad company and the General Berliner Omnibus AG (ABOAG). Now, everything was One.
And there is also only one class, the separation of the high-rail to 2. and 3. Class was abolished. "This tariff reform means a radical," writes Reuter in the annual report for 1927. And then the success got a new name: the BVG.daily mirror people for Free
order No Celebration, but 90 trees to the town
1. January 1929 was founded the BVG, Reuter Chairman of the Supervisory Board. A cheers Celebration this 90. Birthday dispensed with the LOB, you want to plant instead of 90 trees. "These 90 trees are a Symbol of our Rootedness in our city," said BVG Boss Sigrid Nikutta. The current Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the BVG, Ramona Pop, announced: "We are investing in vehicle procurement, electric mobility and station modernisation – so the Berlin to come in the next 90 years, reliable and climate-friendly way from A to B". It will be your task, as a business Senator for the many millions in financial Senator Kollatz through boxes.
During a visit to a U-Bahn-Werkstatt Pop had just before Christmas, complained that for 20 years, not invested had been, this had to be rescheduled. As reported, the absence of LPP, especially cars for the U-Bahn. During the visit, you had said that the investments "had no alternative", that is to say: Kollatz has to back the money out of it.
In this anniversary year, is likely to be abandoned, therefore, from March on very busy lines in the 4 - or 4.5-minute intervals. The trains will then arrive in the main traffic time, only every five minutes – not a reason to celebrate. Ernst Reuter, purchased in the years 1927 and 1928 nearly 400 subway car – that would be unthinkable today. 1927 223 million Berliners rode the U-Bahn, the network consisted of 57 kilometers.90jahrebvgWeitere images ran ads 17: 47Da 1 of 22Foto:LPP-archive today, almost all of the files in the war, to write this simple round of January 1929 as the founding document of serve.Back Next
Currently (as of 2017) drove 563 million people the U-Bahn, the network today includes 146 km. Currently, trains that were rebuilt for the smaller "low-profile" (line 1 to 4), temporarily driving in the wider tunnels of the "large profile" (lines 5 to 9) – this is also not a reason to celebrate.
BVG Boss wants to link all modes of transport
With an idea was a failure, Ernst Reuter. The collective community with the S-Bahn was not possible, and these remained with the railroad company. Only since the 9. In January 1984, the BVG in West-Berlin and took the S-Bahn by the East German Reichsbahn, was a common Tariff. This is now already 35 years.
To celebrate the 90. Birth day was also the BVG-Boss Nikutta as a visionary: By linking with other modes of transport, such as Cycling, car-sharing, E-scooters and Rufbussen the Mobility service will be "in the future, so diverse and simple that your car is the exception, and Berlin can create instead of Parking lots Parks and playgrounds". One such App, which is linked to all offers, has announced transport, Senator Regine Günther at a recent mobility conference.More about

the one with the Parking spaces is likely to be a similarly tough nut, as the unit rate for Reuter. As you know, the residents go in Lichtenberg, on the barricades, because Parking will be eliminated in the Siegfried line for separate bike paths.
