The Bayerische Oberlandbahn GmbH (BOB) is a private Railway company based in Holzkirchen, Germanymarker, and is owned by the company Veolia Verkehr.

BOB Trains connect Munichmarker with the the alpine hamlets of Bayrischzellmarker and Lenggriesmarker, and the spa town Tegernseemarker. The routes are not electrified and are serviced with diesel-electric trains.

Served Lines

Integral at Geitau Station
The 3 lines of the BOB run on part of the former Bayerischen Maximiliansbahn as a combined train-set from München Hauptbahnhofmarker via the southern ring to Holzkirchen. In Holzkirchen the combined train-setseparates with one train-set heading off to the east running thru Miesbachmarker and Schlierseemarkerto Bayrischzellmarker.

The two remaining train-sets continue on to Schaftlachmarker where they separate again, withone train-set going to Lenggriesmarker via Bad Tölzmarker, while the last train-set heads off to the southeast to Tegernseemarker. The Tegernsee Line makes use of the tracks owned by the Tegernsee-Bahn, a private rail infrastructure provider.

The separate train-sets travel from Munich Central Station to Holzkirchen or Schaftlach as a single train.They then split-up and travel on to their individual destinations. On the return trip to Munich the individual units are connected again and run as a single train back to Munich Central Station. Between Holzkirchen and Munich BOB Trains run under the Münchner Verkehrs- und Tarifverbund tariff system.

The Bayerische Oberland Bahn GmbH is a member of the "Tarifverband der Bundeseigenen und Nichtbundeseigenen Eisenbahnen in Deutschland" (TBNE).

History

Integral at Mittersendling Station
was founded on 31 March 1998 and began service the same year. The company was launched to create more competition on the rail systems of southern Bavariamarker.

In the early days of service BOB trains were often plagued by technical problems with the new/untested Integral train set.These initial problems have since been resolved and BOB is now considered very reliable.

Since the beginning of July 2004 BOB has added 3 Bombardier Talent Train-sets to cover rush hour service.

Time Table

Integral between Harras and Heimeranplatz
BOB Lines are serviced at hourly/bi-hourly intervals, and with extra trains during rush hour. However since December 2004every other train/direction has had an increased journey time of 12-14min. This contradicts the basic idea ofa single Integrated Timetable .

Utilization

BOB Trains are not only highly used during weekdays, but also on the weekend by tourist and locals planningexcursions to the Bavarian Alps, with walking, bike riding and skiing being favorite activities. Either a Bayern Ticket from Deutsche Bahn or a B.O.B weekend pass may be purchased for up to 5 passengers at a significantly discounted fate. Bus connectionsare available in Lenggriesmarker and Tegernseemarker to Karwendelmarker, Achenseemarker, Rofan andthe Ski slopes at Wendelsteinmarker, Sudelfeld, Brauneck, Spitzing.
