According to the German Federal Traffic Ministry, a total of 13 Trains and 190 Busses are used for the transportation of refugees and migrants through Germany every day. The Ministry is responsible for the transfers of refugees and a migrant since November 1, until then their distribution to all parts of Germany has been the task of the Ministry of the Interior.
The busses used are privately owned, while the train transports are conducted mostly with state owned Deutsche Bahn trains. The Ministry of Finance is paying for the transports. Over 850.000 refugees and migrants have come to Germany during 2015 so far. They are being distributed throughout the county by the so called “Königsteiner Schlüssel”. This means that the states that gather the most taxes and have larger populations have to take in more refugees and migrants. By that Key Northern Westphalia (21,2 per cent), Bavaria (15,3 per cent) and Baden-Wurttemberg (13 per cent) have the largest number of refugees on their territory.
