 Public Transport in Berlin


Home > Public Transport in Berlin

Berlin is a lively city, well-designed, with a very well organized public transport. It is also easy to reach Berlin. The city has two airports,11 access highways including Berliner Ring (A10) and 12 railway stations (including four regional).

In Berling, there are Underground – U-Bahn, suburban trains - S-Bahn, as well as numerous bus lines and trams (mainly in the eastern part of the city).


Since January 1, 2008, in a designated part of Berlin there can move only vehicles that meet certain emission requirements (badges: red, yellow and green). From January 1, 2010, only vehicles with standard EURO4 (green badge) have an access to thevery center.


In Berlin, there are four main types of urban transport:


U-Bahn station, which is underground

S-Bahn, or commuter rail

Strassenbahn, means trams




Berlin underground has 10 lines and a lot of stations in close vicinity to each other. During peak hours they run every few minutes. During the week they run from 4 o'clock in the morning to 12.30 at night. At weekends, they run 24hours, except for lines 4 and 55.



Local train is faster than the U-Bahn, because it has fewer stops. It runs every 10-20 minutes and during peak hours - often. The network consists of 15 lines, going beyond the city boudries.



In Berlin they run four types of buses and special lines:


buses are mostly marked with three-digit numbers and run every 20 minutes from 5 am to 24

the main route, also connecting the bus route with the railway (U-Bahn, S-Bahn), have the letter M before numbers; they run 24h every 10-20 minutes

Express buses have the letter X before numbers; they run every 5-20 minutes

night lines have the letter N before numbers; tickets can be bought from the driver; they run to 4 am, every 30 minutes



They run in the eastern part of the city and in the district of Mitte. Similarily to the buses, they have different marks:


trams moslty run from 5-6 am to midnight, every 20 minutes

the main route, also connecting the bus route with the railway (U-Bahn, S-Bahn), have the letter M before numbers; they run 24 hours, every 20 minutes
