Employees will be offered alternative positions at Deutsche Bahn in other regions. Job cutting is due to a continuing decrease of railway kilometers covered by DB Regio Südost in the federal states of Saxony-Anhalt, Saxony and Thuringia.

DB Regio Südost currently employs 3,100 people in total. The job reduction will affect 500 employees working in the company’s administration department. According to the company’s CEO, DB Regio Südost intends to cut 900 jobs in total until 2017.
