Berlin buses

Bus vor der Gedächtniskirche

The biggest bus network in Germany

More than 1.400 buses belonging to the BVG and its subcontractors cover 300.000 kilometres on scheduled services every day.

The double deckers have practically become landmarks of the city. Passengers can enjoy views of the Kurfürstendamm and other sights from the top deck.

Every year, the buses travel 89 million kilometres and carry over 350 million passengers. The bus network is the biggest in Germany.

The distance travelled by all the buses every day equates to eight times the circumference of the earth. They would have to circle the globe 2.400 times a year to achieve the same mileage.

Together with other transport companies, Berlin’s buses serve a metropolitan region of 4,3 million people and cover an area of over 1.000 square kilometres.

The timetable is regularly adapted to meet the changing face of the city. Bus routes are the quickest way to connect new residential areas and industrial estates to the public transport network. Buses play a key role as shuttles to S-Bahn, underground and tram line connections.
