Public transport prices to remain stable in 2007

2007 is turning out to be a year of sudden price increases, but good news - or at least lack of bad news - in one area: the VBB, the body which oversees public transport in Berlin and Brandenburg, has confirmed that there are no plans to raise prices on public transport in the region in 2007. The next fare rises will definitely take place in 2008 though, once the effects of recent shifts in the cost of energy have been taken into account.

The VBB coordinates all fares in Berlin / Brandenburg, including those of the BVG, S-Bah and Regionalbahn trains of the Deutsche Bahn. The announcement by Deutsche Bahn that it will be raising fares in December 2007 by around 3% won't affect its trains covered by the VBB fare system, mainly the Regionalbahn and S-Bahn.
