Since 1 January 2000, KreisVerkehr has been the transport association for public transportation in the district of Schwäbisch Hall. The focus of KreisVerkehr is the RegioTarif, a uniform fare for all public transport in the entire district and partly also in neighbouring municipalities.
Since the introduction of the RegioTarif, passengers have been able to switch freely between all modes of public transport and need only one ticket. To calculate the RegioTarif, the district area is divided into zones. The amount of the fare depends on the number of zones traversed.
On 1 January 2002, Verkehrsgemeinschaft Schwäbisch Hall (VSH) was replaced by KreisVerkehr Schwäbisch Hall GmbH. New partners include the district of Schwäbisch Hall (with a stake of 50 percent) and DB Regio AG.
The supervisory board of KreisVerkehr Schwäbisch Hall GmbH consists of council members of the political groups as well as representatives of the transport companies involved.

This includes the RufBus (on-call bus), which provides transport options in the evening, at the weekend, and on public holidays on 19 additional routes. Unlike regular transit, the RufBus (on-call bus) must be ordered in advance. The buses alone travel over 10 million kilometres each year. This corresponds to about 26 times the distance between the Earth and the Moon. Every year, around 17 million passengers use the transport of KreisVerkehr. The most loyal customers include over 20,000 passengers who hold a monthly or annual pass. More than 12,000 customers who occasionally travel by bus and train are now using the advantages of the KolibriCard.
