The consortium consisting of the municipal company Dürener Kreisbahn GmbH (DKB) of the district of Düren (Kreis Düren) and the rail services provider R.A.T.H. GmbH prevailed in the award competition for the bus services in the district of Düren ("Linienbündel Kreis Düren") and has been awarded the contract on 01.05.2019. With about 7 million Nkm / a, the tender was one of the largest tenders in German bus transport. The tender of the district of Düren is not only because of the volume of tendered bus services, but also because it is one of the very few cases in which a municipal company is not entrusted by direct award, but face up to competition, remarkable. The tendering procedure for the bus services in the district of Düren took several years.
