Welcome to STOAG. We are a modern service company with a long tradition. In 1897, Stadtwerke was founded as the first municipal service company for tram operations, and in the same year the first “electric” rolled along the city's streets. Today, 129 buses and 6 trams ensure environmentally friendly mobility in Oberhausen, including four electric buses. Also five so-called speedster As an on-demand offer, we provide additional mobility in the evenings and weekends. Around 440 employees guarantee good connections and good service.
The core of our route network is a public transport route that is independent of private transport, on which buses and trams travel up to 80 km/h and provides a quick connection between the main train station, Neue Mitte Oberhausen with Centro, Rudolf-Weber Arena and many leisure facilities, and the Sterkrade district ensures. Trams and express buses provide direct and seamless connections between the city's districts, the city's most important and interesting facilities and neighboring cities. Night Express lines ensure that partygoers or night-shift workers reach their destination safely around the clock on weekends.
The passengers travel in modern buses with air conditioning - the average age is around six years. Free surfing with STOAG Wi-Fi is possible in all buses and trams. Passengers with restricted mobility can use public transport in Oberhausen without restriction. All buses and trams are built without steps, the buses also have folding ramps that can be used for wheelchair users if necessary. The entry areas are designed to be correspondingly wide.
At important stops, dynamic passenger information systems show the current departure times of buses and trams. The Neue Mitte stop, with its futuristic roof structure made of steel and glass resembling a Mikado stack, is still a highlight of modern architecture even more than 25 years after its opening.
