The StUB for Nuremberg
With more than 500,000 inhabitants, Nuremberg is the second largest city in the Free State of Bavaria. In addition to the historic old town, which is a popular tourist destination, Nuremberg is a high-tech, industrial and innovative service location. A dense public transportation network of buses, trams and the subway ensures fast, handicapped-accessible and environmentally friendly mobility. This needs to be expanded further. For example, the north of Nuremberg is to be connected to the tram system with the Stadt-Umland-Bahn.
How will the people of Nuremberg benefit from the StUB?
- The StUB will expand Nuremberg's tram network and create comfortable and fast connections between the northern parts of the city in the Knoblauchsland and the city centers of Nuremberg and Erlangen.
- With the StUB, university locations of the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg will be connected with each other and the science axis Erlangen – Nuremberg will be strengthened.
- The Stadt-Umland-Bahn will be an attractive connection for employees who commute between the cities, with 10-minute intervals – the StUB will run even more frequently during peak traffic times.
- As a sustainable means of transportation, the StUB can run on 100% green electricity and thereby make an important contribution to achieving local climate goals.
Stops along the route
Where does the Stadt-Umland-Bahn stop in Nuremberg?
So far, a total of five stops are planned in the north of Nuremberg. However, the number and location could still change during the dialogue and planning phase:
- Reutleser Straße
- Buch Nord
- Am Wegfeld
How long does the journey with the StUB take?
Based on previous planning, we have calculated the travel times for the following connections for you:
Am Wegfeld – Freyeslebenstraße
Am Wegfeld – Sieboldstraße
Am Wegfeld – Erlangen Hauptbahnhof/central station
=> 15 minutes
=> 20 minutes
=> 25 minutes
Have your say!
The planning of the Stadt-Umland-Bahn is being done in dialogue together with the people from the area. Therefore: Get involved! We organize so-called local forums for each city, in which we discuss topics on site along the route. Higher-level planning is the focus of our so-called dialogue forums.
The entire route
The StUB will connect the cities of Nuremberg, Erlangen and Herzogenaurach as a tram. The starting point is the “Am Wegfeld” stop, the current terminus of Line 4 in the north of Nuremberg.
The next steps
Planning for what is currently the largest tram line project in Germany is in full swing. You can find out what we are doing now and how our schedule will continue.
