One app for all situations
The app connects the timetable information (Berlin and Brandenburg) with the ticket sales (Berlin ABC). Choose your route calculation using the different options: direct connection or with a stopover, barrier-free or by bicycle. You can also specify transfer times and means of transport under “options”. Display departure/arrival times in real time at the stop of your choice or directly from the start screen using the widget. If you don't know where the next suitable stop is, we show you the way within the map function. What to use a car sharer? Use the map to locate the vehicles of our car sharing partners. Us the alarm to be notified when to board, change or disembark your vehicle or if what to be notified that your connection may be at risk due to delays. Use the zoomable route maps (can also be used offline) for further information.
The heart of our App – Tickets
The FahrInfo Plus App is your ticket machine for buying a ticket for the fare area Berlin ABC. We offer day tickets, single tickets, short trip tickets, 4-trip tickets, connecting tickets, small group day tickets, WelcomeCard and CityTourCard tichets as well as tickets for bicycle transport. For quick purchase simply activate the ticket widget. More tickets are in the works.
Small tips for a quick ticketing
Save time by saying your single tickets with recurring start locations under favourites and activate the ticket widget and your tickets (max 2) are always displayed in the widget on your start screen. When logging in for the first time, check the box "Stay logged in". This saves the annoying password pondering.
Buy your ticket using the widget in the app and not at the subway station but make sure you have a stable Internet connection when buying. During a ticket inspection simply click on the valid ticket in the widget. You do not need an Internet connection unless you have been logged out. An active online connection is required to call up timetable information, departures and purchasing tickets.

Ratings and Reviews
Easy. Accurate. Convenient.
BVG made our Berlin visit a total success. The planner function worked every time. Ticket purchases were a snap. Timetables were accurate (and, of course, the trains, trams, and busses were always on time). I think we might have missed some of the sites and attractions without the BVG app.
New design bad usability
The new version came with a new design and it is really bad. The “clean” approach makes hard to understand what is currently selected and what will be changed if I click something.
Also it introduced a new bug in the planner. When I chose my favorite locations as the start location, it always change automatically to my current location.
Only works if after the first search I edit the starting point.
Berlin is already the best city in the world, and this app makes it accessible to anyone that hasn't learned enough German to really enjoy the city.
Seriously though, trains and other transport are 99% on-time to what the app says, and the logic on path finding is pretty reasonable.
