STOAG uses more buses before Christmas

STOAG is increasing traffic on the route between the main station, Neue Mitte and Sterkrade on all weekends before Christmas and on the weekend of January 6th / 7th as well as on Black Friday on November 24th. On Saturdays between 14 p.m. and midnight and on Sundays between 24 p.m. and 12 p.m. there are more buses than usual on the route. For drivers, we recommend the P+R facilities Werthfeldstraße (Olga Park stop) and Landwehr (Landwehr stop).

Minibuses operate as shuttles
The traffic traveling to Neue Mitte will lead to particularly heavy traffic and traffic jams on Osterfelder Straße and Essener Straße on the coming weekends. The STOAG bus lines SB94 and 961 are also affected by this. If the timetable of these two lines can no longer be maintained due to long delays, they will change their route. The SB94 line ends or turns at the Olga-Park stop, the line 961 buses take a diversion along the route. As a replacement, minibuses are used as shuttles on Osterfelderstrasse and Essener Strasse between the Osterfeld Süd stop and Hansastrasse.

The Christmas markets in Oberhausen can also be easily reached by buses and trams:
