The S-Bahn Berlin GmbH sees itself as a mobility service provider for all Berliners and guests of the city. More than 90 percent of our S-Bahn stations are accessible for disabled people via ramps or lifts.
Many train stations now have services for the visually impaired, and at busy train stations, escalators are available for the physically disabled. For an updated list of facilities at various train stations, please refer to the respective station pages.
Each S-Bahn station has a system of signs directing passengers to entrances, exits, transportation, and service facilities. For replacement bus services, there is a temporary guide system in the form of signs and red foot prints on the ground. In addition, you will find construction notices and maps in the glass cases.
Emergency equipment and warnings, to ensure passenger safety, are clearly visible on all platforms. The end of the platforms are also marked. In the trains, there are emergency facilities such as an emergency brake, fire extinguisher, and first aid kit. A tritone sounds and the red signal lamp illuminates before the train doors close.
Passengers are permitted to take a bike with a supplementary bike ticket in the S-Bahn.
Bicycle parking facilities are also available at numerous stations in Berlin and the surroundings.
