On Thursday (October 10, 2019), the Group announced that the aim was to ensure a "seamless hourly cycle" between the capital and Munich and between Berlin and Frankfurt. This is provided for in the new timetable for 2020, which is to apply from mid-December 2019. This would increase the supply between Berlin and Munich by ten percent.

New connection between Dresden and Rostock

The establishment of a new line between Dresden, Berlin and Rostock was already known. From mid-December, a new Intercity line will operate on this route, initially with ten journeys a day. From March 2020, this connection is to be offered every two hours.
This will give six towns along the route a regular long-distance connection again. These include Oranienburg and Elsterwerda in Brandenburg and Neustrelitz and Waren (Müritz) in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. Warnemünde and Schoenefeld Airport will be added in May of next year. As soon as the new Capital Airport BER opens, this stop will be relocated there.

New timetable available from 15 October

From 15 October 2019, customers will be able to view the new timetable and also book trips. With the Strong Rail concept, to which the timetable is also geared, the railways want to become more punctual and expand capacities. Billions are to be invested in this.
