This corresponds to more than 9.5 million bus kilometers on the road in 2015. For ticket sales, two of our own ticket offices and about 50 privately operated ticket offices are available.
With more than 570 committed employees - 430 of them are bus drivers - KVG plays an important role as an employer.
