URBAN TRANSPORTATION
Munich, like most large European cities, has an excellent public transportation system which is cheap and easy to use.  The Munich metro train system is divided into the U-Bahn and the S-Bahn. 

U-Bahn is the downtown subway system, while the S-Bahn consists of trains that run from the city center to the suburbs.  U-Bahn and S-Bahn trains share some of the same train stations, and travel both underground and above ground along their lines.

Trains in Munich run daily from 5am-1am, and the frequency of the trains depends on the location of the train stations.  Stations in the center of the city service multiple U- and S- train lines, and have a higher frequency of trains.  Trains stations in the suburbs may only service one S- line and will have trains less frequently.

You can buy tickets from machines at the train stations, from sales desks, from newstands, and aboard buses and trams.  You can purchase tickets individually, in multi-ticket strips, or for multiple day journeys.  You must validate your tickets in automatic stamping machines as you board the bus or train, or near the escalators in train stations.

For more information, call 089 41 42 43 44.

Taxicabs are also readily available around the city at taxi stands, or by calling 089 216 10.
