131 Nature There needs to be a transport and energy revolution Because what options are there in rural areas A bus rolling through the countryside with just five passengers is even less sustainable than a car holding just a driver That s why there is hardly any public transportation in and around Diepholz Buses are only full on schooldays and they don t stop at nearly enough po tentially convenient places Some big companies run their own shuttle service for employees But many of those employees still need a car to get to the pick up points A company of our size with employees coming from a wide area simply cannot af ford such a service Although we dearly love to travel by bus underground light rail and tram on business trips we use other means to get to work because there is no public transport system to speak of To go eleven kilometres from the town of Rehden to our headquarters in Diepholz you need to change buses once and then walk 1 2 kilometres Depending on the time of day this takes between 50 minutes and 1 hours compared to 20 minutes maximum by car And then should you miss the bus at 5 50 p m after walking 1 2 kilometres to the stop you ll have to wait until 6 18 a m the following day for the next bus to arrive Needless to say most of us get to work by car Those who can form car pools or better yet come by bicycle Only the few who live along the Osnabrück Bremen railway line can come by train and then only in combination with a car or ideally a bicycle So we are eager to see what the future will hold in terms of mobility Will there soon be electric minibuses serving rural areas Or will we have to build a landing pad for Lebensbaum s own fleet of driverless electric drone taxis
