    Registration and disposition of call-buses in the Schwäbisch Hall district takes place via the CallCenter of OWL Mobility Consulting in Detmold. The previous number for call-bus 0180 3 - 78 32 87 (9 ct per minute landline, max 42 ct per minute mobile) is still available. However, we recommend, not least for cost reasons, the registration of a call-bus ride via Tel 05231 - 977 771.

    Login times have been extended to 8:00 to 20:00 daily. Even after 20:00 clock the call center is accessible, but then only for questions and the case that a booked call-bus ride can not be started. The deadline for registration is 20:00 pm.

    Since June 2019 it is possible to register call-bus rides online. The same login times apply as for the telephone registration. The registration takes place via a WebApp, which is available via the browser on every PC, SmartPhose etc. and is not installed.

    Restrictions on bicycle transport by bus since 1 January

    Since 1.01.2019 the bicycle transport in the busses is restricted in the traffic area of KreisVerkehr. From Monday to Friday, bicycles are not allowed in the buses. On weekends and public holidays, on the other hand, the previous regulations continue to apply. Also in the trains, cycling is still possible in the district free of charge, with no exclusion time on all days.

    The decision of the transport companies and the district to exclude bicycles during the week on the bus is due to the fact that the free parking spaces in the buses have been increasingly used for years by pushchairs, rollators and wheelchairs. Public transport companies endeavor to provide new, larger parking spaces in buses in the future, but this is only possible to a very limited extent due to the design of the interior of the bus and the desire of many passengers for a seat.

    Since then, some cyclists had to get off the bus again with their bicycle, despite a valid ticket for themselves and the bicycle, when passengers with a stroller or wheelchair wanted to get on the bus at a follow-up stop. These take precedence over the bicycle, i. the drivers are instructed to give priority to these passengers. This often led to incomprehension and long discussions with the cyclists concerned.

    In order to avoid further conflicts here, and because the cyclists can not be guaranteed transport (despite the purchase of a ticket) due to lack of space, the conditions of carriage (§11, para. 1, collection of goods) of KreisVerkehr GmbH have now been changed.

    We ask all passengers with a bicycle to understand this decision. Both the state of Baden-Württemberg and us, together with the district and municipalities, are seeking to expand and improve the possibilities for the safe and comfortable parking of bicycles at public transport stops in the coming years. And even today there are often suitable bicycle parking areas at the stops, or at least in their vicinity.
