For travelers from the direction of Nürnberg it comes for this reason to wait in SHA-Hessental.

Further details can be found in the timetable tables (PDF). Information is also available on the Internet or at your train station.

Redesign Spitalstraße in Crailsheim from April 1st to September 13th

Following the renovation and redesigning of the Gartenstraße section from Schönebürgstraße to Parkstraße last year, the area from Parkstraße to Bullinger Eck will be expanded this year. For this reason, the inner-city section Spitalstraße - Ellwanger Straße can not be accessed from the bus station in the period from Monday, 1.04.2019, until approximately 13.09.2019.

Restrictions on bicycle transport by bus since 1 January

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.
