An arrangement from the 1935 in Germany's transport legislation prevents bus companies from operating in intercity transport. However, Federal Minister of Transport Peter Ramsauer plans to implement legislation to privatize bus lines until 2013. Research shows that bus companies will provide passengers with a cheap and eco-friendly travel opportunity, creating a serious alternative to the railway giant, Deutsche Bahn.
German Transport Minister Peter Ramsauer's arrangement to allow the privatization of intercity bus networks until the end of the year turned out to be implemented. Speaking to Bild Online, Ramsauer stated that intercity travel in Germany would be ound cheap ler and ler cover long distances ik as far as the transportation network in the United States uses metallic gray-colored buses known as olabil Greyhound Bild. The Federal Transport Minister said the long-distance bus lines are in favor of the privatization up to 2013, as also included in the coalition agreement.
In parallel, the German Economic Research Institute (DIW) in a report prepared by the full transportation of the bus transportation is the cheapest and most environmentally friendly means of transportation said. In the same survey, it was calculated that a bus company would be able to earn more than three times the cost on the motorway, while on state roads it could at least double the cost.

In addition to the developed railway networks in the UK, Sweden, Czech Republic and Spain, intercity bus lines are also available between European countries. Bus transportation is preferred, especially since it is cheaper in long distances in England and Spain. In Germany, the use of intercity bus lines prevents the regulation of transport legislation from the 1935 year, which is intended to protect rail transport.
The coalition government drafted a draft law to change this outdated practice, but the Federal Assembly of State Representatives requested some amendments to the draft. In Germany, a limited number of bus companies are only able to operate using routes that are not adequately serviced by the German railway company Deutsche Bahn. However, these routes, which require many transfers, mean increased travel time and increased travel costs for passengers.
