With over 5 million passengers and almost one million tons of freight transported daily, the group's core business is its railway activities in Germany. Every day, Deutsche Bahn transports more than two million customers with its buses and operates a total of more than 31,000 train runs on its almost 34,000 kilometer-long, modern rail network, which is open to competition.

Each day, Deutsche Bahn's Passenger Transport Division transports over ten million passengers by train and bus Europe-wide.

In addition to the internationalization of its business, the main focus of Deutsche Bahn's strategy is on creating networks and developing end-to-end travel and logistical chains across all modes of transport.
