City buses drive with restrictions

Affects lines 1, 5, 10 and evening lines 101, 105, 110

Press release from January 11, 2019

Because of too slippery roads, the stops along the mountain routes in Landshut currently can not be approached. This affects the stops at Moniberg (lines 5 and 105), from Birkenberg to Lainerbuckel (lines 10 and 110) and lines 1 and 101 from Kumhausen Rathausplatz to Preisberg. In addition, the stop "Kumhausen / Altes Rathaus" can not be approached.

Lines 5 and 105 leave from / to the Alte Kaserne or Altstadt stop. Lines 10 and 110 leave from Sportzentrum West to Goldinger Straße and back.

All other ten lines are not affected and will be operated according to the timetable.

The affected stops are expected to be serviced again on Saturday morning.

The stops are not approached for safety reasons. On slippery roads or when it is extremely muddy due to heavy snowfall, the bus can slip when going downhill. The bus is then uncontrollable and can crash into a fence or house wall and takes in the worst case even pedestrians. A bus can do a lot more damage than a regular car because of its massive weight. The municipal utilities are constantly in contact with the winter service. Nevertheless, it is currently difficult due to the weather to keep all roads clear.
