The ETCS programme in the DB network is implemented by Deutsche Bahn AG. The projects are performed by its company DB Projektbau GmbH, by order of and in co-operation with the infrastructure manager DB Netz AG.
The railway undertakings DB Schenker (freight) and DB Fernverkehr (long-distance passenger) have their own ETCS migration strategies and act independently of the DB Netz AG.
