Furtwangen Citizens' Bus (the Bürgerbus)

Furtwangen Citizens' Bus (Bürgerbus) (I2008-1)

The Furtwangen Citizens' Bus (Bürgerbus) is an organization run by a group of local volunteers which ensures,with the help of 20 volunteer drivers, that all parts of Furtwangen are reachable by public transport. Buses leave from the central bus stop at the Clock Museum near the entrance to the HFU A Building to outlying areas such as the Kussenhof student halls of residence. There is a special arrangement for HFU students: a multi-trip ticket costs €22 for 40 trips, the equivalent of 55 cents a trip. The ticket is a cheap solution for those who want to avoid the steep hills in some parts of Furtwangen, especially in winter. The multi-trip ticket can be bought directly from the driver.

The bus timetable has 3 bus lines. Details can be found on the organization's website.

Students who would like to volunteer as drivers, can gain valuable experience for their CVs while doing something good for the local community.
