Even though the trains and buses are getting emptier and emptier in Berlin, the public transport system still works. Apart from a few restrictions, Berliners can use public transport to get around the city, although unnecessary journeys should be avoided at all costs. There have been changes in the timing of trains and buses, and a few lines and services have been suspended. An overview.


All underground lines in Berlin run at least every 10 minutes. The U55 line is temporarily not running and trains of the U3 line only run between Krumme Lanke and Nollendorfplatz.


All tram lines run every 10 or 20 minutes. Only the supplementary lines 16, 18, 37 and 67 were discontinued.


All MetroBus lines also run at 10-minute intervals. Stops of all other bus lines are served at least every 20 minutes. The following bus lines are temporarily not running: X36, X49, 218, 291 and 380. All stops of these lines, except 218, are also served by other lines.


The S-Bahn trains of Deutsche Bahn also continue to run at the usual intervals. There are changes on lines S1 and S3: The amplifier runs are no longer necessary, the usual frequency is maintained. Furthermore, lines S26, S45 and S85 no longer run.
