Regionalverkehr Köln GmbH (RVK) is a regional public transport provider. It organizes and maintains public transport for the Cologne region. The core traffic area includes Kreis Euskirchen, Rheinisch- Bergischer Kreis, Rhine-Sieg Kreis on the left bank of the Rhine, as well as Rhein-Erft Kreis. In addition, RVK also provides its services in the independent cities of Cologne, Bonn and Leverkusen. RVK thus connects urban agglomerations with sparsely populated, rather rural areas. RVK is aware of its social and environmental responsibility as a strongly anchored and committed company in the region. Especially in times of scarce resources and climate change that can no longer be ignored, environmental awareness is a key factor to the company. Thus, RVK launched the project “Null Emission” (Zero Emission) which aims to substitute all conventional diesel buses with zero emission vehicles. In consequence, RVK deploys two fuel cell buses since 2011. This year RVK ordered 30 additional fuel cell buses to take a major step towards a sustainable, emission free public transport. www.rvk.de
