Dogs on public transport: costs and conditions
What dog owners must consider when taking dogs on trains, buses and trams.
Dogs and other pets are generally allowed on public transport in Berlin. To ensure that the transport of dogs in the U-Bahn, bus and tram runs smoothly, a few rules should be observed.
Does a dog need its own ticket on the train?
Small dogs, which do not exceed the size of a domestic cat, may travel free of charge on buses and trains. The condition is that they are placed in a closed container such as a transport box or bag. Larger dogs need a ticket with a reduced fare. When using a day ticket or small group day ticket, a dog can be taken along free of charge.
What are the rules for taking dogs with you at BVG?
Dogs must be placed in a transport box or in a suitable bag during the journey. If this is not possible or desired, dogs on buses, trams and trains need a leash and a suitable muzzle. Furthermore, animals may not be placed in a seat during the journey by public transport. Furthermore, BVG only transports animals that are not dangerous for passengers travelling with them.
