With a fleet of around 100 buses and 21 routes, the WVG keeps Wolfsburg moving. The local public transport company is a fully owned subsidiary of Stadtwerke Wolfsburg AG and employs around 260 people. With a dense route network that was completely overhauled in October 2014, the WVG ensures that just under 40,000 people reach their destination every day – comfortably, quickly and safely. In the process, the company’s vehicles cover five million kilometers per year.
Wolfsburg’s first bus route was launched in 1940. At the time, Wolfsburg was still a small town with just 5,000 inhabitants. At the beginning of 1975, when Wolfsburg’s population had grown to 140,000, local public transport was spun off from Stadtwerke Wolfsburg AG. Wolfsburger Verkehrs-GmbH, a legally independent subsidiary company, was then established.
