From Frankfurt-Hahn Airport to Mainz by Flibco Bohr ORN Airport Shuttle Bus
The bus from Frankfurt-Hahn Airport to downtown Mainz (usually via Simmern and Ingelheim) has a confusing number of names. It is often referred to as the Airport Shuttle Hahn or Linie 600 Hahn Flughafen. The actual bus is operated by Flibco and Bohr Omnibus for ORN (Omnibusverkehr Rhein-Nahe) and any or all names may, or may not, appear on the bus or bus stops. The actual bus is most likely to be be green and white with flibco.com logos but could be white and red with ORN and / or Bohr, DB logos.
Furthermore, it is part of the Rhein Nahe Bus network of Deutsche Bahn (but no Deutsche Bahn tickets or discounts are valid on the bus).
There is only this one bus service between Flughafen Frankfurt-Hahn (HHN) and Mainz so any bus bearing Mainz should be the right one.
