BerlKönig - Your smart, affordable & easy way to get around Eastern-Berlin (S-Bahn Ring). Missed the last subway? Out on a pub crawl? Shopping binge around the city? No problem: We’ll get you where you need to go. Request a ride on your phone, get picked up at the next corner and share your trip with other riders going your way. Riding with BerlKönig is safe, easy, and comfortable. Why? Because we love you!
>How it works:
1. Register: Simply input your name, e-mail and payment information.
2. Book a ride: Use the app to set your pickup and drop off within our service area (Eastern part of S-Bahn Ring). We’ll match you with a BerlKönig Driver headed your way and tell you the price and time to pick-up upfront. Our smart pickup coordination will direct you to a nearby corner to meet your driver.
3. Get picked up: Within minutes, the BerlKönig arrives at the designated pickup and you are on your way. These pickup locations are easily accessible and recognizable, such as BVG stops, street corners, stores, or points of interest - more than 5,000 in Berlin!
4. Share the ride: We pool riders into the same car efficiently and with minimal detours, bringing each passenger to their destination while keeping our price point affordable for everyone. Up to 6 passengers can ride in one vehicle. We also provide wheelchair accessible rides.
>Efficiency at its best:
With BerlKönig, you have an alternative to busy rush hour commutes, costly trips back home after a night out, and searching for parking spaces. Our professional drivers take you to your destination quickly and comfortably. Our smart algorithm was built for ride sharing and together with our corner to corner pickups enables efficient routes for everyone.
>We promise low-fares for everyone:
Save money and ride anywhere within our service area at affordable rates. You always see the final price of your ride upfront and can simply pay with your credit card or PayPal within the app.
We are working on the clean city of the future. By using shared rides and electric vehicles, BerlKönig helps reduce congestion and emissions in our inner cities.
We’re proud our rider and drivers represent the diversity of Berlin. Get on board and experience the many facets of your city.

Ratings and Reviews
Slow service, bad drivers.
Tried contacting the service to close my account after a driver behaved impossibly disrespectful and offensive. No luck.
If you can bear a “no service, the complaints department is closed” attitude, this is your thing! If you value your time... don’t bother. ViaVan is going to great lengths to make it hard for you to close an account. Maybe they need the client figures and don’t want anyone to close their account? Dishonest and appalling.
Loved the service during my Berlin visit - can’t wait for it to expand!
Best new app!
What a great and smart way to get around Berlin! So excited that this app has finally launched.
