20 bus lines are restricted, speed limits for subways and trams

The storm “Zeynep” has caused some significant restrictions in local public transport in Berlin.

Bus traffic was particularly hard hit, they said Donut Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG) on Saturday morning with: A total of 26 bus routes throughout the city had to be temporarily diverted or interrupted, mostly because of fallen trees or fallen roof tiles. Passengers or employees were not injured.

Even at Tram and subway as well as ship traffic there were impairments. Six tram lines only ran to a limited extent because of objects and tree parts in the overhead lines, in one case a car blocked the journey on the track bed. The subway line between Breitenbachplatz and Krumme Lanke was closed for a short time on Friday afternoon due to a broken tree top. At the turning lock, the ferry service of lines F10 and F12 is discontinued, line F11 runs irregularly.

For safety reasons, a speed limit of 40 kilometers per hour currently applies to trams and subways. Bus traffic continues to be severely affected by the consequences of the storm, as a BVG spokesman said on Saturday morning. Around 20 bus lines are currently only running to a limited extent.

This is what the S-Bahn looks like

The S-Bahn in Berlin is running again – albeit with major restrictions.

Operations resumed at 9 a.m., Deutsche Bahn announced on Saturday morning. Accordingly, there is free travel on sections of lines S1, S25, S3, S45, S46, S7 and S75 as well as on the entire route of the S41.

According to the railway, there are still various route closures.
