The MVV-App is a journey planning application created by the Munich transport association (Münchner Verkehrs- und Tarifverbund, MVV). It is both free of charge and without advertising.
It provides travel information for the entire public transport network in Munich and the surrounding regions (districts of Dachau, Ebersberg, Erding, Freising, Fürstenfeldbruck, München, Starnberg and the norhern part of Bad Tölz-Wolfratshausen) – no matter whether you go by train, (sub)urban railways, underground, tram or bus. In many cases with real-time information. With the MVV-App you can also purchase selected MVV tickets with your smartphone or tablet on the go. Register once and you have the option to either buy the single trip tickets or you can choose to buy one of our day tickets for your stay in Munich. Besides, the MVV-App provides additional information on public transport in the entire Greater Munich Area, such as public transport and tariff maps as well as any changes in the timetables.
The departure monitor indicates the next departures and/or arrivals from a stop or the stops in the neighborhood of your current location in real-time (where available).
The journey planner will help you to find the quickest route from A to B – in many cases with real-time information. Just enter the name of a stop, a point of interest or any desired address in Munich or the surrounding districts as your starting point or destination. With GPS you can also use your current location. The results include all footpath directions. Save and label your favorite trips, get further information about your journey, share your trips or enter them into your calendar to be notified in time. The MVV-App also helps you buy the correct ticket for the selected journey. With just a few clicks you can purchase mobile tickets directly from the journey planner.
At a glance, you can see disruptions that might affect your daily commute ordered by lines and their operation names. As yet, the descriptions of timetable changes are only available in German.
With menu item “Tickets” you can purchase selected MVV tickets as mobile ticket. Register once within one of the listed shops (identical range of tickets) and choose your ticket before starting your journey. You can pay for your tickets by using a credit card or direct debit. As electronic tickets are personalized, you have to bring your official photo ID.
• Network plans:
In addition, the MVV-App provides you with various public transport network plans and tariff maps. Although most of the plans are in German language, you can find several plans in English, too. For example: the general plan of the regional train, suburban train and underground in the entire MVV area.
• Interactive map:
The interactive map does not just help you to come along in the MVV area. You get access to further information such as nearby departures by using your GPS signal.
If you choose the appropriate settings, you can for example avoid stairs during your trip or prefer less walking time over the quickest connection. In case you take a bike with you, the journey planner is able to take this into account too. You can also exclude connections not being integrated within the MVV tariff.
Thank you for your constructive feedback. With the current update, MVV-App was not only entirely rebuilt technically, but also brings new functions and improvements such as new widget, tariff comparison, option to display vehicle positions, enhanced settings and many more.

Ratings and Reviews
Bring back English
The new app looks great, but on the eve of Wiesn, the English translations in the ticketshop have been removed. Not cool for people that were planning to use this app to get around Munich during Wiesn.
You'd wouldn't think a free app could be a rip-off
... But this one cost me 60 euros. You can't buy tickets in advance on this app. God knows why. But it will happily trick you into thinking you have, at least until an inspector asks you to produce it. Then you find the truth: you can do a search for connections 10 months into the future, day, time and everything. But when you click "buy", the ticket they sell you is valid starting now--and expires in three hours.
This is incompetence verging on dishonesty. I'd think it was intentional, but everything else about the UI is so poorly thought out and executed, I guess the designers have just never met a human before.
Use the app. It serves a necessary function. But be careful!
This isn’t much more than an online timetable app. Actual cancellations or delays never seem to show up in the app. In a city like Munich where trains and buses are almost never on time and prolonged cancellations are frequent, this is quite useless. Plus, every bit of information is pulled from the servers with superslow connections so that everything is sluggish. A real shame compared to other cities like bvg app which is quite accurate and responsive, but unfortunately I’m stuck in Munich for a while.
