Ratings and Reviews
Can't buy ticket
There is a function to buy an online ticket but it doesn't work. When you click purchase the app just infinitely loads. Better off using the DB app.
The best BVG app right now
Best app on the store at the moment. It's got all the functions that Fahrinfo lost with its latest update.
You can search by address, click for earlier or later results, you can see departure times by station (extremely useful with buses since they almost always don't stick to the regular schedule), all maps are there, u-sbahn, tram, 24h, potsdam. Walking maps are there as well.
And it even has some improvements over the Fahrinfo app, for example the departure times also show the real departure time right beneath with green/yellow/red fonts depending on the delay; and you can see the complete itinerary with all the stations you'll be passing by so you can make sure you are on the right track.
Only things they could improve: add the "graph" view so you see all the itineraries side by side by time and not just as a list. And add the stations maps, so you know where the h the TXL or 200 bus depart from at Alex or at the Hauptbahnhof, if Fahrinfo updates and brings back that functionality I might go back to them.
But all in all, best app so far! I might even stick with it even if Fahrinfo updates...unless they being back the station maps...then that'd be a dealsealer.
Love this app.
No more waiting in front of the ticket machine for the guy in front to finish looking for change or for the ticket to print out — you can buy your subway (U Bahn or S Bahn), tram, or bus ticket while you’re walking to the station. I see that some are having trouble after the latest update, but it’s fine on my iPhone 6s. And you can buy multiple tickets and mix an order for full and partial fare tix.
My daughter has an iPhone 4 and is having some problems with the app — for some reason, she can only buy a ticket on a wifi connection, not with her regular phone service. I don’t use the mapping function, so I can’t comment on that. The app is free, and if it works for you, I think you’ll find it highly convenient.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
