The StUB route

The Stadt-Umland-Bahn will connect the cities of Nuremberg, Erlangen and Herzogenaurach via tram. In addition, an east branch (the so-called "Ostast") from Erlangen through the Schwabachtal to Eckental is being considered. The StUB will start “Am Wegfeld”, today the northernmost stop of the Nuremberg tram system. The destination of the route in the west is the city center of Herzogenaurach and in the east Eckental with a connection to the Gräfenbergbahn. On its way, the StUB will connect central university, school and business locations as well as important traffic junctions and residential areas.

Current status of planning

After the completion of the first dialogue and planning phase, the so-called draft planning for the StUB route between Nuremberg, Erlangen and Herzogenaurach is currently underway: The rough route of the Stadt-Umland-Bahn will be further specified. We plan the exact location of the stops, the bridge structures and the exact track layout of the tram system.

In addition, we are making progress with the planning for the so-called „Ostast“: The east branch will lead from Langemarckplatz in Erlangen via Spardorf, Buckenhof, Uttenreuth, Dormitz, Neunkirchen am Brand and Kleinsendelbach to Eckental. There you can transfer directly to the Gräfenbergbahn. The surrounding villages of Hetzles, Marloffstein and Weißenohe as well as Heroldsberg, Igensdorf and Gräfenberg will also benefit from the east branch of the StUB.
