The app is very reliable and I use it to check if the suggested connections are similar to what Google Maps says. I also buy the tickets through the app. There are 2 things that annoy me unfortunately: 1. I have to know the exact address of the destination, it would be great if there was an automatic suggestion like in Google Maps. Because now I have to go to Google Maps, copy the address and go back to BVG. 2. There are many Sbahn strikes. I can't choose a connection only with ubahn and buses.

Hallo, sie können in den Einstellungen der App im Menüpunkt Verkehrsmittel die S-Bahn abwählen. Es werden dann Verbindungen ohne die S-Bahn angezeigt. Wenn Sie eine Adresse als Start oder Ziel nutzen, benötigt die App Straße und Hausnummer. Im Drop Down-Menü werden dann verschiedene Vorschläge mit den dazugehörigen Postleitzahlen angezeigt.

I use the app daily, but what really bugs me is the lack of an option to set the transfer time to less than 5 minutes. I know the layout of my frequently visited stations, I know where to get on and off the train (front, back, middle) and which stairs to use. I rarely need less than 3 Minutes to change. But the app never shows those connections, so I'm led into a false sense of security and walk slower, just to see my best connecting train leave in front of my face :(

Hello Roman, when you enter a connection, the system determines the optimum transfer time. As a rule, this works quite well. Only if a longer transfer time is needed can you extend it.

The route finding is OK but it's very annoying that the route disappears when leaving briefly the app screen. This way I have to memorise or screenshot all the changes or search for the route again with the starting time in the past. I saw others also complaining and should be easy to fix. Just give me back the same view even when I leave the app

Voraussichtlich Ende 2023 wird unsere runderneuerte Fahrinfo-App an den Start gehen. In der App wird es dann einige Neuerungen geben, die das Fahren einfacher machen.

What's new

- Bugfixing and optimisations
- Activation of anonymised user analysis to improve the app
