Step-free mobility

BVG Muva as lift substitute

Broken or not available lifts? Missing step-free access? This can be a real challenge for people with restricted mobility. In this case BVG Muva can help. Along the U5, U7 and U8 as well as on parts of the S-Bahn lines S2, S3, S5, S7 and S9 (both directions) BVG Muva acts as a lift substitute – as you require without a fixed timetable.

Convenient and step-free to your destination

If you depend on a lift and the alternative route to your destination takes much longer, you can call the BVG Muva call center or book a ride via the app. This way you get easy, quick and step-free to your destination. You can plan your entire journey with BVG Muva in order to receive suggestions for the best alternative routes for a step-free access through the city. The BVG Muva vehicle picks you up when you cannot move forward. You can contact the BVG Muva call center around the clock regarding bookings and questions at (030) 256 55 555.

For stations without lifts you can book your BVG Muva up to 7 days in advance via phone only. In case of broken lifts you can book your BVG Muva ride throughout the day in advance by phone.
