Working for Digital Rail for Germany
ETCS can significantly minimise the obstacles to competition in national and cross-border traffic. That is good – also for the jobs in this sector. Because as a trade union we demand that the introduction of new technologies must also have an advantage for the employees."
Digital rail will make rail travel in Germany much more attractive. It leads to more punctuality and expands the capacities of the existing infrastructure. This will make it possible to better dovetail local and long-distance trains. If, in addition, the urgently needed additional train paths for regional rail transport are created, the number of passengers can also be increased in regional rail transport.“
We will realise an unprecedented development push: more trains, more punctual and even more environmentally friendly. This is a central building block for implementing the transport policy goal of getting more traffic onto the railways."
We want people in Germany to say: Wow! Deutsche Bahn got me to my destination easily, cheaply, comfortably and reliably. Cheering instead of complaining - that is our goal. With its digitalisation offensive, DB is making a huge contribution to this. The railway can be more than the most environmentally friendly and modern means of transport, namely pleasure and passion."
