This affects Line 61, the Gielgen-Hauptbahnhof line and connections in Bad Godesberg. This will further equalize the passenger volume during the Corona pandemic, and in particular students who have not yet been vaccinated can better protect themselves against infection. This was decided by the crisis team of the city of Bonn.
"The students should get through the pandemic in the best possible way. Therefore, we want to avoid situations in which the risk of infection is increased. With regard to buses and trains, we have therefore reviewed the situation again and will offer more extra rides," says Mayor Katja Dörner.
The additional journeys at the start of school will start on Monday, September 6, 2021. For more than a year, the city and SWB have already been organizing 23 additional journeys on particularly busy routes at the start and end of school. Since all SWB trains, buses and drivers are in operation at the start of school, a subcontractor will take over these Corona-related trips.
For technical reasons, the trips cannot be displayed in apps or on electronic message boards.

The city of Bonn asks all passengers to spread out among the various vehicles on offer and not to automatically use their usual means of transport at their usual time.
Initially, this additional service will be available until the fall vacations. The city of Bonn is applying for funding for the additional costs from the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, which is expected to finance 100 percent of the amplified trips.
