The contract runs from June 12 2016 to December 2030. There is an option for the Dresden – Hof service to be terminated in December 2025, to enable services to be restructured as part of the planned electrification of the Hof – Nürnberg route.
All services are to have a conductor under the new contract, up from 20% at present, and Deutsche Bahn tickets and discount cards will be accepted.
