Public transportation

BVG (public transportation guide): http://www.bvg.de/index.php/en/index.html

The public transportation network consists of underground metro, busses, trains (S-Bahn) and trams. When using a bus passengers have to enter at the front door and show their tickets to the bus driver. The penalty for not having a valid ticket is 60€. The Berlin tariff area is subdivided into zones A, B & C.

Recommended: Show your GUC Berlin Student ID, have a personal picture ready and apply for a monthly student ticket (AB zone) for 55€ at DB or S service station (e.g. at Hauptbahnhof or Alexanderplatz). A normal monthly ticket for Berlin AB zone costs 79.5€.

Please note: Beware of tricksters! Please buy your tickets only at official outlets.
