Almost unnoticed by a broader public, the red-red-green senate in Berlin – pushed forward by the Green’s Transport Senator Regine Günther – has decided to put the S-Bahn out to tender. If not stopped, two thirds of the operation will be awarded to private companies in a tendering process worth up to eight billion euros. This threatens to privatise and dismantle the unique S-Bahn network in Berlin at the expense of employees, passengers as well as the climate.
In December 2019, the „Eine S-Bahn für Alle“ alliance was formed by unionized train drivers, the climate justice movement, members of the parties Die LINKE and SPD as well as anti-privatisation organisations. Our goal is to inform the public about the on-going privatisation and build pressure to force senate to stop the tender process.
