Many German coach stations failing, says report

Conditions at some long-distance coach stations in Germany have been criticised by the ADAC motoring club, which was one of the original partners in the Postbus venture sold last year to Flixbus.

It says facilities in Bremen, Dortmund and the university city of Goettingen are particularly poor, with either no bus stop canopies to shelter travellers from the elements, a lack of electronic displays or central ticket offices with information facilities.

ADAC says arrangements for express coaches at Stuttgart airport are excellent and judges the coach stations in Hamburg, Munich and Hannover to be ‘good’.

‘The long-distance coach market seems to have grown faster than the infrastructure in recent years,’ says ADAC’s Alexander Möller.
