Local Public Transport
Public transport services include underground trains, trams and buses operated by BVG, and local trains operated by the Berlin S-Bahn. The two companies accept the same tickets, and use the same concentric fare zones, A, B and C.
Note: For reasons too complicated and political to be mentioned here, the Berlin S-Bahn currently provides irregular service. Please check the website for current information.
Zone A: Central Berlin up to and including the S-Bahn ring line
Zone B: Outside the S-Bahn ring line to the city limits
Zone C: Berlin environs (about 15 km from the city limits), including the city of Potsdam and Schönefeld airport
There are no tickets for a single fare zone. If you are within the zone A or B, you need a ticket for A+B.
If you are in fare zone C, you need a ticket for A+B+C.
If you are going to ride more than twice in one day, get a day pass. If you want to stay for the entire fair and also see the city, get a five-day or seven-day pass.
Some gotchas: Bicycles require a supplementary ticket. Schönefeld airport is in zone C.
