BVG Strike on Friday Feb. 1 / Saturday, Feb. 2

From midight Friday until 3pm Saturday, the BVG - Berlin's public transport system - will not be running due to strike action.

All U-Bahn and Tram services are affected. A few bus lines run by private companies on behalf of the BVG will run as usual, but these are mostly in the suburbs.

The TXL bus service from Tegel Airport to Berlin-Hauptbahnhof will be operating at 10 minute intervals.

The S-Bahn and Regionalbahn services operated by Deutsche Bahn will not be affected and are running as normal. The S-Bahn will be running more frequent services.

Taxis will be hard to get and traffic jams can be expected.
