4-card with new layout

We have developed a new layout for our 4-person tickets so that you can use the ticket more easily. With the old version, you always have to check which field is still free. If you have cancelled a field twice, there can be problems at the ticket inspection because the ticket is invalid in this case. The new 4-trip ticket has four sections. One section is validated for each journey and discarded at the end of the journey. For the next journey, you take the next section and proceed in the same way. The new 4-trip ticket will be in circulation from Tuesday, 28 May 2024. If you still have old 4-trip cards, you can still use them.

EasyShuttle takes you further: in the evening hours in Lachendorf, Flotwedel and Wathlingen

Following the successful establishment of our "Spätschicht" project - an evening bus service between Celle, Wathlingen and Hambühren - we launched another project, the "EasyShuttle", in October 2023. "EasyShuttle" - what exactly is it? EasyShuttle is an on-demand service and a supplement to bus transport. It's like a taxi that picks you up and drops you off without a fixed timetable or route, for example to get from A to B after work or in your free time. The EasyShuttle has been on the road for you since 16 October. From Monday to Friday between 8 pm and 1 am and on Saturdays between 7 pm and 1 am, within the following areas: Lachendorf - Ahnsbeck - Bunkenburg - Jarnsen - Beedenbostel - Celle Wathlingen - Eicklingen - Bröckel - Wienhausen Here's an example: you can combine the late-night service on route 600 between Celle and Wathlingen with EasyShuttle from Wienhausen, Eicklingen or Bröckel by using the EasyShuttle between your home and Wathlingen and route 600 between Wathlingen and Celle. Or you can use EasyShuttle to flexibly plan your journeys to and from Celle from the towns in the service area in and around Lachendorf. How can you book your EasyShuttle via app and what other information is available? Find out more here: GET INFORMED NOW

We welcome our new trainees - Trainee Academy 2023

Under the motto "Talents of tomorrow - optimal support right from the start", our 31 new trainees were able to take part in the new trainee academy for the entire Bus Group from 7 to 11 August 2023. We have broken new ground this year: Together with the BusGroup companies KVG Stade, Verkehrsbetriebe Bachstein and Müller Busreisen, we prepared our prospective public transport specialists for their future tasks at a week-long trainee academy. A total of 39 trainees from the fields of driving specialists, professional drivers, office management clerks and automotive mechatronics technicians for commercial vehicle technology took part in the technology centre of the Braunschweig-Lüneburg-Stade Chamber of Crafts (TZH). The academy imparted basic technical knowledge for the respective apprenticeships, for example "What do I actually have to consider when planning a bus driver's working hours?" or "What does a bus look like inside?" were discussed. Overarching topics were also used to achieve a mutual understanding of the activities of colleagues. Another focus was on teaching communication and etiquette - "trainee etiquette" - in the company. A city rally through Lüneburg, a joint barbecue and several sit-ins provided the necessary variety. One highlight was the tour of our company in Lüneburg. During a tour, some of our colleagues from the plant and the workshop showed us the work equipment, facilities in the various work areas and much more. Best of all, our trainees were able to take a bus from the XXL driving school for a spin around the yard for the first time. The voices of the trainees speak for the success of the academy. They were asked about their impressions of the event and their expectations of their training: Leon, trainee driving specialist | CeBus: "I hope for a long-term and reliable employer who is just as keen on me as I am on them." Sascha, trainee driver specialist | KVG, Lüneburg operation: "My expectation is that all the trainees in the bus group will be merged together, because basically we are all one year of training and have to stick together somehow." Leo, trainee driving specialist | KVG, Stade plant: "I found the trainee academy programme very exciting, especially all the impressions of what's to come."
