Our service offer

hvv on track

Logo U, S, A, R

4 U-Bahn, 6 S-Bahn and 20 regional rail lines as well as 3 AKN lines provide fast, direct U/S/A/R network plan - diagram (1.64 MB)  independent of road conditions within the Hamburg region.

U- and S-Bahn lines run all through the night before the weekend and before public holidays. In some cases, the regional rail services run night trains at the weekend. At the same times there is additionally a network of bus services consisting of many MetroBus and some city and regional bus lines which connect with the rapid transit stations.

Some buses are more equal than others


bus-21 (1)

The network within the network – 29  Metro buses (MetroBusse) all stops - diagram (329.90 KB)  represent fast,  frequent and reliable links to other services. The MetroBus lines provide a direct  service into the city centre and to district centres as well as cross-links outside the centre.  



Get there faster – without paying extra: the 13  XpressBusse - schematisch (1.61 MB)  make it possible! They provide fast  links to major public transport interchanges or important destinations with only a few stops on the way. The Xpress buses can be identified by the X before a single or double-digit line number.

City and regional buses

regionalbus-4148 (1)

City and regional buses have a three-digit number, or in some outlying regions four digits.

Night buses

nachtbus-601 (1)

U- and S-Bahn lines as well as many MetroBus and city bus lines run all through the nights before the weekend and before public holidays. These services are supplemented both at weekend and before public holiday by night bus lines, which serve mainly outlying districts and towns and villages in the surrounding region. Night buses always have a three-digit number starting from 600.

Harbour ferries

faehre-73 (1)

Harbour ferries Hamburg (Hafenfähren) - map (1.61 MB) run in the port of Hamburg and across the River Elbe. These have a double-digit number starting with 61. That means you can “put to sea” with your hvv Card!
And by the way: if you want to take a boat trip on the Elbe or Alster just for fun, Hadag and Alster Touristik also offer a wide range of pleasure trips, also for groups, and sightseeing tours (information in German). The hvv Card is not valid for these, however.

Complementary mobility

The hvv is currently in the process of transforming itself into a mobility network combining existing classical public transport and individual mobility offers from third-party providers. The sharing products or on-demand services are a valuable addition to the mobility revolution (in German).

Mobility on call

hvv is growing into an interlinked mobility network (in German) linking existing classic public transport services and individual on-demand mobility services.
