OPPENLÄNDER restructures transport association DING

A large OPPENLÄNDER mobility team has successfully restructured the Donau-Iller-Nahverkehrsverbund GmbH (DING), based in Ulm, from a mixed to a public transport association. The transport companies have withdrawn from their position as shareholders. In addition to the previous shareholders Alb-Donau-Kreis, county Neu-Ulm, county Biberach and the city of Ulm, the state of Baden-Württemberg and the city of Neu-Ulm have joined as new shareholders. As a result, not only was the shareholder agreement amended, but new cooperation agreements were also drawn up with all companies operating in the network area and the relationship between the public transport authorities was reorganized. From 01.01.2024, the DING will then be able to operate as a pure public transport association. In this complex process, OPPENLÄNDER advised the management of DING and the Chairman of the Supervisory Board, District Administrator Scheffold, with the following team: Prof. Dr. Christofer Lenz and Dr. Corina Jürschik-Grau (joint lead), Julia Felger (all public law/local public transport regulation), Julia Sauter and Dr. Thomas Trölitzsch (both corporate law). The members of this five-strong OPPENLÄNDER team were able to draw on their experience in the restructuring of other transport associations.
