Lift substitute

No lift, or it’s broken down? And stairs are not an option?

You can order a BVG Muva quickly and easily by calling or using the app. BVG Muva is here for you if you rely on a lift and the alternative public transport route to your destination would take considerably longer. BVG Muva enables accessible travel along the U8, on parts of the U5, and between Attilastraße and Marienfelde S-Bahn stations (in both directions). 
The service is initially being tested, with the aim of obtaining a better understanding of demand. The BVG will also learn how best to serve the demand. In particular, we’re testing new vehicle types, signage, and service processes. We invite you to participate. 

Service area

Along the U8, on parts of the U5 (Frankfurter Allee, Magdalenenstraße, Lichtenberg, Friedrichsfelde, Tierpark, including the connected stations of crossing S-Bahn lines), and between Attilastraße and Marienfelde S-Bahn stations (in both directions).
