1. Berlin Tours
Berlin is always worth a trip and we provide you with some means of transport: Explore the city centre by bus, tram or suburban train, marvel at the Berlin underground by subway, come quickly from A to B by the regional train within Berlin or relax during a crossing by ferry. The different kinds of tickets (e.g. monthly tickets, day ticket, short trip ticket, 4-trip ticket and more) are valid for all means of public transport.

- Bad connection? Then we better inform you now when the app is busy
- Double buy? We have installed a further safety mechanism to prevent this from happening again
- Turn BC into AB? Now the tariff area for buying 4-ride tickets in Berlin B remains the same as you selected it
- No credit card payment possible if you live outside Germany? Now it works for everyone again
- No stops? The stop list had hiccups for a short time. Now all stops are there again
Ratings and Reviews
Decent but lacking
This app is ok. You can get your tickets which is great but not rocket science. What bothers me to no end is that as of a recent update, I literally have to accept the T&C like EVERY TIME! Maybe instead of making those cutesy but slow loading graphics, the developers could read up on core data or other means of persistence so that users don’t have to do the same thing every time they buy a single ticket? Someone’s definitely very much asleep at the wheel here ... 😴
Developer Response ,
That problem still/even appears with Version 1.9.29? It should have been fixed with that version. We will check it again.
Best App on my phone!
This App makes getting around Berlin so easy. The functionality is sophisticated- the app suggests your local stop when you only need a single ride and with one click your off. My first purchase I made an error and purchased my ticket too far in advance and the customer service team refunded my ticket with no fuss. Excellent user experience!
Start location selection issues
Beautiful design, but at least half of the time that I try to buy/activate a ticket, the nearby stops list on the “start location” selection screen never populates, and a search returns no results, despite the map loading correctly. This makes the app highly unreliable to actually use.
