Public transport in Germany is awesome. The world could learn a lot from the Germans (and the Japanese). I love you Germany!

Öffentliche Transportmittel in Deutschland sind ehrfürchtig. Die Welt könnte von den Deutschen (und vom Japaner) viel erlernen. Ich liebe dich Deutschland! (is that correct?)

Indeed we could learn a lot from the Germans and Japanese when it comes to PT systems - take a look at the thread on the Stuttgart Stadtbahn that was started recently in this section of the forum. It's enviable for most cities let alone cities of this sort of size.

Exactly

Cities like Canberra, Cairns, Hobart and maybe Christchurch, Dunedin (you know more than me about those two cities) would really benefit from some German PT know-how. Even the bigger cities should be paying attention now that Sydney and Melbourne have become dense enough to sustain high frequency metros. I'd kill for a Melbourne U-Bahn

Don't use „ehrfürchtig“, it sounds funny!

P. S.: Public Transport in Switzerland is better than in Germany.

indeed germn transportation system is "ehrfürchtig"
its functional but not clean and nice!
warum bauen wir in deutschland immer nur so hässlige 80er jahre stationen!
wir solltren mal auch auf die ästhetik achten!das geht viel schöner!

It's a matter of money, not every country wants to spend as much money for design as Russia for it's metro stations.

Compared to many countries I've been to, German PT is both clean and perfectly adequate aesthetically (it's even quite nice in places). You never know how good it is until you're forced to use something worse (like I currently am).

I'll trade fancy aesthetics for something functional and clean that works!

There are some great systems in Germany, but to be honest Frankfurt doesn't seem like the best example to me.

agree on that. for example the U5 rides as a tram for more than 50% of its line. not even as a traffic-separated stadtbahn. the early plans were much more promising

blue lines are tunnel lines

well, tunnels are expensive

this is the current system:

some of the proposed lines in 1964 are now realized as tram lines which are not included in the map.

If you compare Stadtbahn systems in Germany, Cologne is the best, but Franfurt is not bad.

I never said it's bad! PT is generally very highly developed in Central Europe, so any criticism has to be put into perspective.

The 'look & feel' of Frankfurt's U-bahn is not very pleasing in my view. The A and B routes (Stammstrecken) were built in the 60ties and 70ties and except for some nice spots which really give you this retro chic feeling, most stations look rather dull and boring and partly even shabby. Since the 80ties things have improved a lot, however there is nothing really exciting about the old C route stations either.

Then there's the trains. It's true that many stadtbahn or hybrid-systems share these problems, but some - in my view - simply solved it better. Too many types of rolling stocks, some very weird ones (upgraded trams to stadtbahn vehicles).

On the plus side, the integration with S-Bahn is really well done.

Frankfurt has the most underground stations of any S-Bahn network in Germany.

This one is probably the nicest of them:




Elevated S-Bahn station
