Public transportation by the CIBORIUS Group
Certified quality

Safety along the route: from bus to train depots, we are there for you

When people travel, safety and order play a major role. CIBORIUS takes care of this at bus and train stations, airports and ship terminals. Our staff are also deployed on the track to ensure a good travel experience, for example in the form of train patrols on regional trains. Of course, freight must also reach its destination safely and be guarded before departure and after arrival, as storage areas are often sensitive areas.

Our particular strength lies not only in the provision of security services, but also in the planning stage. We work together with you to develop a security concept and create a customized package of measures – from personal and baggage checks to access controls to securing bus or train depots and aircraft hangars, for example.

Modern technology against vandalism and theft

Depending on the circumstances, it makes sense to use state-of-the-art security technology, for example in the area of identity checks, as this enables potential threats to be identified using video support. In addition, video measures at night at bus stations (ZOB), parking facilities, hangars, terminals and freight stations help to prevent vandalism and graffiti. If there is a suspected case, the threads come together in CIBORIUS’ own and VDS-certified emergency call and service control center and measures are initiated according to the previously defined plan.
