"MVG and DB\S-Bahn" Public Transportation Tip by matseb

Public Transportation, Munich: 95 reviews and 88 photos

This city provides one of the most dense public transportation systems in Germany. There are rural trains, subways, streetcars and buses. The rural trains are called "S-Bahn" and are operated by the "S-Bahn GmbH", an affiliate of "Deutsche Bahn" corporation, the national railroad company. The subway is operated by the City administration. The others by "Stadtwerke München = SWM". Besides the S-Bahn, all are merged to "Münchner Verkehrsgesellschaft = MVG". All components work together in a tariff system called "Münchner Verkehrs- und Tarifverbund = MVV". So your ticket is valid on every kind of public transport. Riding without a ticket will be fined with 40 EUR.

Type: Subway/Metro
