Discover Munich by public transport!
Munich is one of Germany’s most attractive cities, both for the people who live here and for the visitors who flock here from all over the world. Munich is also the Bavarian state capital, and is recognised as one of the leading economic centres in Germany and indeed in the whole of Europe.
A major factor behind Munich’s success is the city’s highly developed and highly functional urban transport system. MVG – Munich Transportation Corporation – plays a key role in this success story. Munich’s civic leaders realised long ago that a growing metropolis needs to adopt sound, long-term transport policies if it is to remain vital and attractive. This is the vision that has driven the strong commitment to developing a highly integrated underground, bus and tram public transport system.
MVG enjoys a close partnership with the Munich Verkehrs- und Tarifverbund (MVV – Munich Transport and Tariff Association). Other partners in the MVV include private companies with whom we jointly operate scheduled bus services in Munich’s metropolitan area; the S-Bahn München, Munich’s urban rail system; other regional railway companies; a number of regional bus operators; and the Munich municipality. All parties work together to offer residents and visitors alike a well-designed, integrated public transport system that enjoys a ubiquitous presence in the cityscape, in the mass media and in the minds of the people. Wherever the city grows, and wherever new citizens move in – we are there too.
Our commitment to the environment helps make public transportation the obvious first choice, and is Munich’s recipe for success, now and in the future. We embrace the challenge of playing a leading role in shaping the future of our city.
