Tram lines extend the route network of the U-Bahn and more than 20 tram lines run through Berlin, mainly in the eastern part of the city. Metrotram lines run more often than the regular trams.
Tram and Metrotram in Berlin are maintained by the Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe BVG and belong to the Transport Association Berlin-Brandenburg VBB. Thus U-Bahn tickets are also valid for trips with buses, the S-Bahn, trams and vice versa. Ticket machines are located inside the trams but can also be purchased at ticket machines on the platforms of the S- and U-Bahn or ticket counters in larger stations.
Tram and Tetrotram lines run on different schedules. Furthermore, Metrotram lines operate during the night even on weekdays.
The BVG Metrotram has nine lines (1 to 17) which are supplemented by 13 tram lines (12 to 68). The lines of the Metrotram are marked with a "M". On daytime these lines run at least every ten minutes. At night (from 0.30 a.m.) they run in 30-minute intervals.
