Munich has an extensive publich transport network sonsisting of suburban train (S-Bhan), underground (U-Bhan) trams and buses. the other options are by bike, taxi or rental cars or by a walk in the central Munich to explore the city.
S-Bhan or aboveground train lines travel to all hotspots like the Hauptbahnhof, Karlsplatz (Stachus), Marienplatz and Ostbahnhof as well as to places outside of the city like airport, Erding in the north or to the lake district in the south. The S1 and S8 lines travel to Munich Airport. MVV ticket is a vaild in entire public transport network in the Munich area including S-Bhan. Tickets can be purchased in the bus, train station or at the ticket automats.
The U-Bahn (underground) in Munich stops at almost all of the important places in the metropolitan area – and can easily be recognised by the blue ‘U’ signs. It travels underground in most of the network, but also travels aboveground some parts of the city. It is best to refer to the timetable information to work this out, which also tells you the price of your journey.
It is not possible to buy U-Bhan tickets once you board the U-Bhan. Single-Tageskarten- (single day ticket) or Gruppen-Tageskarte (Group day Ticket) is a great option to save money and use the ticket in entire MVV network which is valid for 24 Hours. Important: No U-Bahn trains run from 1-4 a.m. (Monday through Friday) and from 2-4 a.m. (Saturday and Sunday).

The buses are of three categories. Buses with two-digit route numbers (Metrobuses) – connect the large transport hubs in different parts of the city. Buses – with three-digit route numbers (City Buses) – only run within a single area of the city and connect any gaps where connections are bad. Haidhausen, Giesing and Sendling are particularly well connected: they are served by the Expressbus.
All of the buses that MVG (Munich Transport Company) has put into operation in recent years are adapted to the needs of the disabled and the tickets can be purchased in busses unlike that of S and U Bhan. Please note that all day tickets are valid in bus networks.
Munich has the highest density of taxis in Germany (approximately 2.5 taxis per 1,000 inhabitants).You can easily get a taxi either by waving from a roadside, or from a taxi stand, by calling by phone to taxi service companies or using an app like Uber at any location of the Munich. However, travelling by taxi is not exactly a bargain in the state capital. On the other hand, at 1.70 euros for a one-kilometre journey, Munich is in the midrange in comparison with taxi prices in other German cities.
Rental cars are available at the airport and different locations of the city. Advance booking of rental cars will be cheaper than the spot rent. Sixt Car Rental, Buchbinder, Europcar, Avis Autovermietung, Budget Deutschland are some of the rental car companies operating in the Munich area.
