The city traffic mbH Frankfurt (Oder) (SVF) is the operator of the tram and bus network of the city of Frankfurt (Oder) . With five tram lines and ten bus lines around eleven million passengers are transported annually. The company employs around 180 people and has a fleet of 26 trams and 32 buses.


The company was founded on July 1, 1990 by splitting off the public transport assets from Kraftverkehrsgesellschaft mbH Frankfurt (Oder) and bringing it into the company as a contribution in kind. Until July 1, 1992, regional transport was also part of the company. On January 1, 1992 the company was communalized .

The aim of the company was to concentrate on the core business, the implementation of city traffic with trams and buses. In the first few years, the focus was on restructuring the company. This should ensure the stability and reliability of the transport service under the difficulties caused by the structural adjustments in the city of Frankfurt (Oder). This phase was characterized in particular by the decline in passenger numbers due to the collapse of the population in the service area.

From 1993 one could speak of a stabilization of the passenger numbers. The vehicle fleet has been modernized and today represents the backbone for the standard in transport quality. The first steps towards barrier-free mobility were taken, especially with the introduction of the first eight low-floor trams from 1994 and the modernization of the stops.
