On December 29, 2001, the traditional Kieler Verkehrsaktiengesellschaft (KVAG) was transformed into a limited company (GmbH) - the Kieler Verkehrsgesellschaft mbH (KVG).
The state capital Kiel is the 100 percent shareholder with the owner-operated municipal enterprise of shareholdings as service provider for the local public transportation.
The depot Werftstraße (total area approximately 35,000 m2) includes, among other things, the administration, the workshop and the control center. Half of the total of 152 busses is stationed here. The other busses are parked on a sub-area of the depot Diedrichstraße which is approximately 1 kilometer away.
With more than 500 committed employees - 390 of them are bus drivers - KVG plays an important role as an employer.
KVG is partner in the Verkehrsverbund Region Kiel (VRK) and carried almost 32.0 million passengers in 2012.
With 31 lines and 5 night bus lines, 700 bus stops in the city of Kiel are serviced every day round the clock. This corresponds to more than 9.5 million bus kilometers on the road in 2012. For the ticket sale, two of our own ticket offices and about 50 privately operated ticket offices are available.
With these comprehensive offerings, all-round service and modern technology, KVG makes a statement as a reliable partner for the local public transportation (ÖPNV) in Kiel and around the Kieler Förde.
