Deutsche Bahn emphasizes that the price increases would remain well below the current inflation rate of around 8 percent. “Germany is currently experiencing the highest price increases in 50 years. Deutsche Bahn is also affected by this, for example due to rising energy costs,” the statement said. “Like many other companies, DB is forced to react to the massive price increases by adjusting prices.” At the beginning of September, the German tariff association announced that prices for regional transport would be adjusted by an average of 4 percent.
