Public Transport on New Year's Eve

Berlin has round-the-clock public transport, and never more so than on New Year's Eve (German: Sylvester), when half the city is on the move to throw fireworks at the other half. All U-Bahn and S-Bahn lines will be running through the night, as well as the bus and tram night lines.

The S-Bahn will be running trains at 20 minute intervals through the night, with trains at 10 minute intervals on the lines S1, S25, S3 and S41/42 (ring line) until around 3am. Lines S45 and S85 will not operate.

The U-Bahn will be operating on the normal Sunday timetable with trains at ten minute intervals until around midnight; after midnight until 8am on January 1st they will be running approximately every 15 minutes, except for lines U12, U2, U6 and U9, which will continue at 10 minute intervals.

All bus and tram night lines will be running (with the exception of bus lines N1-N9, which follow the U-Bahn lines with the same number, except for N2, which will run between Zoo and Hackescher Markt). The 24-hour "Metro" bus and tram lines (route numbers beginning with "M") will also be running, with more frequent service than usual on the most important routes.
