The kvgOF Kreisverkehrsgesellschaft Offenbach mbH (kvgOF; up to July 2014 Kreis-Verkehrs-Gesellschaft Offenbach with limited liability ) is part of a public transport authority in the Offenbach district and is one of the local partners of the Rhein-Main-Verkehrsverbund (RMV). While the RMV organizes the regional rail and bus traffic in the entire network area, the kvgOF is responsible for the local public transport (ÖPNV) in the Offenbach district.

In the District of Offenbach approximately 340,000 inhabitants. A rail connection in each of the 13 cities and municipalities as well as around 40 local bus routes and collective call taxes offer citizens a broad local transport network.

In coordination with the RMV, the kvgOF plans the bus network and the range of rail lines in the district. Other tasks include the creation of the district-wide timetable and further customer information, the financing of the offers and the tenders for the allocation of transport services. In addition to customer-oriented advice and ticket sales, their tasks also include school transport.


On September 29, 1992, the Kreis-Verkehrs-Gesellschaft Offenbach mbH was founded. In 1994 and 1995, 10 cities ( Dietzenbach , Dreieich , Heusenstamm , Langen , Mühlheim am Main , Neu-Isenburg , Obertshausen , Rödermark , Rodgau and Seligenstadt ) and 3 municipalities ( Egelsbach , Hainburg , Mainhausen ) of the Offenbach district joined as Shareholder of the Kreis-Verkehrs-Gesellschaft Offenbach. The headquarters of the Kreis-Verkehrs-Gesellschaft Offenbach was at the time in the Offenbach district building, Berliner Straße 60.

In January 1996 the Kreis-Verkehrs-Gesellschaft moved to Ziegelstrasse 8 in Offenbach.

The move to Dietzenbach, Masayaplatz 1 took place on September 26, 2003. The RMV mobility center of the kvgOF was opened on November 7, 2003.

Since June 9, 2010, the qualified geographer Andreas Maatz has been managing director of the Kreis-Verkehrs-Gesellschaft Offenbach mbH. The chairwoman of the supervisory board of the Offenbach district traffic company is Claudia Jäger (first district member of the Offenbach district).

At the turn of the year 2011/2012 the company was renamed Kreisverkehrsgesellschaft Offenbach mbH (kvgOF).

For the timetable change, two new bus routes to Großostheim and Aschaffenburg were introduced in a three-year trial run from December 11, 2016 . The new line 57 runs from the district of Aschaffenburg from the left bank of the Main from Großostheim "Neues Rathaus" via Stockstadt to Mainhausen-Zellhausen "Wiesenstraße". The new line 58 runs from Aschaffenburg "Regionaler Omnibusbahnhof (ROB)" next to the main station via Mainaschaff to Mainhausen-Zellhausen, Seligenstadt and Froschhausen and ends in Rodgau-Weiskirchen Bahnhof.

Line 57 will be discontinued from August 4, 2018. Additional trips on line 58 are offered for this.

CleverCard district wide and student ticket Hessen

In August 2014, the Rhein-Main-Verkehrsverbund, together with the Kreisverkehrsgesellschaft Offenbach mbH (kvgOF) and the Offenbach district, introduced a district-wide CleverCard for the first time. An amount was paid for this school year ticket that roughly corresponds to price level 1 of a previous school year ticket, but it was still valid in the entire district with the adjacent tariff areas including Frankfurt Airport - only not in Offenbach am Main . Specifically, these are tariff zones 35, 36 and 5090 - without tariff zone 3601 (city of Offenbach). During the Hessian school holidays, you could use the CleverCard to move around the entire RMV network area, including Frankfurt am Main , Marburg , Gießen etc. The validity period was one year and was not automatically extended.

In the summer of 2017, the CleverCard was replaced by the Hessian student ticket across the region. With the personal annual public transport card, schoolchildren and trainees can use local public transport throughout Hesse for one euro per day for a whole year. The RMV introduced this ticket together with the two Hessian associations Nordhessischer Verkehrsverbund (NVV) and Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Neckar (VRN) on behalf of the State of Hesse instead of the previous CleverCard or CleverCard with first validity from August 1, 2017.

Mission statement mobility

The Offenbach district has initiated a process of action together with the Offenbach roundabout company, the Society for Integrated Traffic and Mobility Management Region Frankfurt RheinMain and the Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences . The aim is to develop a model of mobility for the Offenbach district and thus make it capable of dealing with the challenges of public transport in the future.
