In 2021, the city of Karlsruhe will put into operation a new public transit line plan, which was developed in cooperation with ZIB. The reason for the redesign of the network was the relocation of the public transport into a tunnel under Kaiserstrasse, which is the central pedestrian zone in Karlsruhe, and into a southern branch from Marktplatz (market place) to Augartenstrasse . The redesign was carried out on behalf of Verkehrsbetriebe Karlsruhe VBK by ZIB in cooperation with ptv AG and TTK GmbH. It implements a high quality, efficient, and operationally stable network. The plan was presented to the public for the first time on March 12th, 2020, at Bürgerzentrum Südwerk. Mayor Dr. Frank Mentrup, the technical director of VBK and AVG Ascan Egerer, VBK operations manager Ralf Messerschmidt, ptv expert Steven Pfisterer and Prof. Dr. Ralf Borndörfer of ZIB presented the plans and answered the questions of the citizens; the event was moderated by Jürgen Essig of SWR.
