Public transport financing: precise advice and flexible solutions

Public transport plays an essential role in the mobility of the future. However, municipal and private transport companies face a number of challenges: New EU regulations such as accessibility, emission-reducing measures and the constantly growing number of passengers require high investments. Deutsche Leasing supports the financing of this important pillar for the economy, society and the environment with precise advice and flexible solutions. An important partner in this are the local savings banks.

Local public transport is considered one of the most important factors when it comes to quality of life - in cities, metropolitan regions and in the countryside. However, operating the buses, trams and other means of transportation is cost-intensive. In addition, local authorities and operators will face major challenges in the coming years:

  • Replacement needs for outdated fleets
  • Legally required accessibility of vehicles from 2022
  • Reduction of greenhouse emissions by 2030
  • Constantly growing passenger volume

In order to contribute to the achievement of the emission targets set, the above-mentioned factors lead to a high and cost-intensive investment requirement. For example, low-emission or zero-emission buses must be purchased with new types of drive (battery or hydrogen-powered). In addition to the high acquisition costs for vehicles, further substantial investments in infrastructure are required. In the case of e-buses, this may include investments in the charging infrastructure or, in the case of hydrogen-powered buses, the necessary filling stations for hydrogen as an energy carrier.

Municipalities and private operators are increasingly using leasing solutions to finance a modern, efficient and low-emission public transport system.

Leasing extends the scope for action and financing

In order to minimise capital expenditure, more and more transport companies and bus operators are turning to the alternative financing form of leasing to finance their bus and train fleets. Financing by means of leasing allows you to acquire a modern, efficient fleet of vehicles while maintaining or even expanding your own scope for action and financing. Due to the time limit and flexibility, leasing contracts are also ideal for constantly renewing fleets and keeping pace with technical progress. In addition to leasing as a form of financing, Deutsche Leasing also offers classic credit financing, which in turn is characterised by particularly long-term fixed interest rates.
