The four most important growth drivers
for a successful future

Population growth, urbanisation, mega cities

Urbanisation is a global megatrend that is also rapidly increasing the demands placed on public transport systems and the demand for transport telematics.

Climate protection is taking off

Public transport is a key building block for achieving the agreed climate protection targets. This is why major investment programs will be launched in this sector in the future.

Smart cities

Digitalization allows smarter solutions for users. Real-time information from different means of transport for passengers is a key to the mobility of tomorrow.

International growth markets

init is well positioned in the growth markets of North America and the Asia-Pacific region with its subsidiaries and will continue to grow here.
