Karlsruhe is currently undergoing major construction projects in its inner city. These lead to changes that heavily affect the public transportation system. In 2016, a project "Konbiverkehr 2020" to devise and evaluate possible future designs using mathematical optimization methods was started by Verkehrsbetriebe Karlsruhe, the traffic consulting companies ptv and TTK, and the research institute ZIB. This talk reports about this project and its results.
