Who we are

VBN (Verkehrsverbund Bremen/Niedersachsen) is a public transport association of 34 municipal and private carriers, covering the independent cities of Bremen, Bremerhaven, Delmenhorst and Oldenburg, as well as the adjacent districts of Ammerland, Diepholz, Oldenburg, Osterholz, Verden and Wesermarsch, plus individual communities in the districts of Cuxhaven (Community Beverstedt, City of Geestland, Community Hagen im Bremischen, Community Loxstedt, Community Schiffdorf, Community Wurster Nordseeküste), Nienburg (Joint Community Grafschaft Hoya) and Rotenburg/Wümme (Community Gnarrenburg, City of Rotenburg/Wümme, Joint Community Selsingen, Joint Community Sottrum, Joint Community Tarmstedt, Joint Community Zeven).

The VBN’s field of activity is public service transport within the VBN region. Its core activities are based on a number of contracts with associated carriers and the ZVBN (Zweckverband Verkehrsverbund Bremen/Niedersachsen), an association of six counties and four cities in the region. ZVBN is the regional authority for public service transport.

We have formed work groups for close cooperation with our partners. The central decision-making bodies are the supervisory board and the general assembly. In collaboration with ZVBN, we work towards the reinforcement, further improvement and expansion of a premium-quality and economical public transport service by road and rail within the network area.
