Again Deutsche Bahn will go on trike this week – and, again Berlin’s public transport provider S-Bahn, owned by Deutsche Bahn, will be affected.

S-Bahn replacement shuttle buses

Currently the north-south S-Bahn tunnel between Gesundbrunnen and both Yorckstrasse stations (S1, S2, S25) is closed – and will stay closed until 1:30am on 4 May 2015 (Monday).

S-Bahn disrupt between Nordbahnhof and Anhalter Bahnhof

The construction work on the north-south connection will be split in two mayor phases: first from November 22nd until December 9th – and then again in […]

public transport: U6 is back

Finally, after 16 months the disruption of U-Bahn line U6 is over. No more “Pendelverkehr”, no more walking between Friedrichstrasse and Französische Strasse. Just jump on that train and non-stop travel across the city. The disruption was necessary to make work on the new U-Bahn station Unter den Linden possible, where good old U6 and […]
