The Bayerische Eisenbahngesellschaft (BEG) is a company owned by the State of Bavaria and organises and finances the regional rail transport in Bavaria. The BEG was founded in 1995, when the responsibility for regional rail transport was transferred from the federal government to the states. Compared to the early 1990s when passenger numbers were falling and line closures in the region were not uncommon, there has been a remarkable turnaround: Since 1996 offered services in Bavaria have increased by 50%, passenger numbers have increased by 74%. The BEG has implemented an integrated regular timetable called ‘Bayern-Takt’ with optimal connections so that almost everywhere in Bavaria, even in rural areas, trains now depart nearly every hour from morning to night, even on weekends. Both, competition that was implemented between railway companies, and the requirements of the BEG in public tenders were the main drivers in improving the overall quality of the services and revitalizing the market. 370 new vehicles, more comfort, more service, modern passenger information marking regional rail transport nowadays.
