The goal of the project was to develop an app with all important functions for local transportation. The app includes a route search with public transport and sharing offers in Berlin and the surrounding area, mobile tickets and a personalized alarm in case of disruptions or delays.
Through the development of the Berlin Connect App, we were able to gain many insights. We will continue to analyze these and incorporate them into other projects. The pilot project will thus end as planned at the end of the year and the app will be discontinued on December 30, 2021.
We will gradually scale the app down by December 30th 2021 in three steps:
- As a first step the purchase of 4-trip tickets won’t be possible anymore as of October 7th.
- As of November 1st, tickets can’t be purchased in advance anymore. All purchased tickets will then be valid immediately.
- In the last step, ticket purchases won’t be possible anymore as of December 1st.
You will still be able to use all features apart from ticketing (e.g. route search and push notifications) as usual until December 30th.
Please make sure to use all tickets that you might have saved in your account and that you haven’t validated yet until November 30th 2021.
S-Bahn Info App
Additionally, we recommend using the S-Bahn Info App for all information around public transport, S-Bahn and tariffs.
Offers from VBB
As an alternative to mobile ticketing, we would like to suggest taking a look at the offers from Verkehrsverbund Berlin Brandenburg (VBB). Here you can also purchase tickets flexibly and contactless: https://www.vbb.de/en/tickets/mobile-tickets/
The S-Bahn Berlin Connect App helps you get where you want to go – and by the best route. The app not only displays all available public transport options, but also several sharing choices, including car sharing by SHARE NOW and und SIXT share, electric scooters by Voi, bike sharing by Call a Bike and scooters by emmy.
The app lets you set route alerts for frequently travelled routes. So, if your favourite route is affected by potential delays, cancellations or construction work, we’ll let you know in time before you set off. Click on the bell symbol to review or change all your saved alerts.
With the S-Bahn Berlin Connect App the right local transport ticket is just a few steps away. The in-app ticket shop offers all fares with one-day validity, available for quick and easy purchase via Paypal and SEPA direct debit. To view or display a purchased ticket, just open the “My Tickets” tab. Bonus: a handy colour code immediately indicates the remaining validity of your ticket.
