The regional public transport authority VBB (Verkehrsverbund Berlin-Brandenburg) recently released a ‘live view’ map of Berlin and Brandenburg region. The interactive online tool is basically showing all the live positions of all the different public transport vehicles: buses, trams, S-Bahn- and U-Bahn-Trains and even ferry boats – live – in real time.
While this map may not be the best tool to find your next vehicle, it is quite a hypnotic waste of time staring at the little symbols crawling and creeping across the map. I just love watching that map for example during lunch break from time to time.
Here is a direct link to the map:
