This means that if you are visiting Berlin, or one of the 88 cities around the world where we’re able to offer timetable public transport directions, you can plan out your transit routes in advance, and can even print the directions to take them with you or share them online with your travel companions. What if you don’t know how to get to the station? Not to worry – you will be provided door-to-door walking directions, with turn-by-turn maneuver list, to get you to the station.
In Berlin we have something even better: you can even get live, real-time timetable information. This means that we know exactly where each train and bus is and if it’s late or on time. You’ll never be surprised by a strike, road works, track maintenance or any other delay. You always get the up-to-date, real-time information so you can better plan and live your everyday adventures. What if it’s a sunny day, and you just want to travel by trams, buses and ferries only? You can select or deselect your public transport options and find the route that’s best for your day.
