We want our services to reflect the modern urban lifestyle and needs of the people who live in Hamburg – that includes laying on free WIFI in the HOCHBAHN and expanding mobility services in our city. SWITCHH POWERS UP The pilot project for Hamburg is celebrating its second birthday and still growing: in 2015 the number of switchh points goes up by three: there are now nine in all. And others are planned in central locations. A new start for switchh is intended to make it Hamburg‘s innovative mobility platform alongside car2go und StadtRAD, and soon with new service partners – and then for all HVV customers, not only those with a yearly subscription ticket! BARRIER-FREE ACCESS FORGES AHEAD More than 80 percent of the U-Bahn network barrierfree by 2018 – that is the goal the HOCHBAHN has set itself as an arranger of complementary mobility. And we are on track to reach it: after completing work at Rauhes Haus station at the end of 2015, Hamburg now has the first entirely barrier-free U-Bahn line, the U4. In 2016, eleven more stations are being converted at the same time – more than ever before! A NEW BUS DEPOT PLANNED The bus depot at Gleisdreieck for some 320 buses in all is due to be ready by 2019. This will not only give the HOCHBAHN expanded bus capacity, but also put in place the infrastructure for zero-emission buses with innovative drive technologies. The plans take account of charging points for battery-powered buses as well as operating fuel cell buses. 25 YEARS OF RAIL LINK TO MÜMMELMANNSBERG When the HOCHBAHN started running services on the extended U3, as it then was, in 1990, it meant that over 30,000 people were added to the U-Bahn network in one go. The link to the large housing estate at Mümmelmannsberg, where almost one in three inhabitants of Billstedt still live today, means a real improvement in quality of life even after 25 years. 4

THE HAMBURG U-BAHN NETWORK IS GROWING It is planned to extend the U4 out to Horner Geest and to build a new line, the U5. These projects are a vital keystone in making Hamburg’s infrastructure fit for the challenges of the future. Planning is in the hands of the HOCHBAHN. The feasibility studies carried out in 2015 are an important milestone. Their results give a green light for the expansion plans, which can now move forward into the next phase. BASE STATION FOR INNOVATIVE BUSES The electrobus terminal at Adenauerallee completed in 2015 is the new start and end point for the buses of the Innovation Line 109 as well as for lines 4 and 37. Various innovative technologies are being tried out in everyday service on the 109 – an important practical test on the way to achieving our political remit to only procure zero-emission buses wherever possible from 2020 on. 58 buses with innovative drives are already running in Hamburg. U4 EXTENSION TO ELBBRÜCKEN IS TAKING SHAPE The extension of the U4 up to the new station at Elbbrücken is in full swing. The construction work is extremely challenging, technically as well as logistically. All the building works have to be coordinated down to the last detail so that the U4 extension can start services in 2018. The 35 metre long steel bridges for the tracks and platforms were hoisted into position at the beginning of 2016. PIONEER OF LOCAL PUBLIC TRANSPORT: 50 YEARS OF THE HVV The HVV is celebrating an anniversary: half a century ago, on 26 November 1965 to be precise, the HVV was founded, the first public transport association in the world. The HOCHBAHN was a founding partner from day one. With new services and offers, the passengers and their needs are the unchanged focus of our efforts. WELL-EARNED RETIREMENT FOR THE DT2 It is the end of an era: after 50 years of service, the last U-Bahn train of the type DT2 is being decomissioned. The units of this type have travelled the equivalent of 62 times around the earth all told. The “Silverlings”, as they are known, were regarded as ambassadors of modern technology when they first went into service. For decades they were a familiar sight in the Hamburg cityscape. 5
