Public Transport

General Information

Trams and buses within the city are operated by the Dresden Transport Services (DVB), which is part of the wider network Oberelbe Transport (VVO) of regional transport providers. Schedules and information about the ticket prices are provided on their website and at each tram or bus stop.

You can find free smartphone apps for public transport in Dresden by searching your app store for VVO or DVB.

For journeys involving trains the “DB Navigator” app by Deutsche Bahn is useful to have.

Find here a map here.

Tickets can be bought on board the trams (yellow vending machines) and buses (from the driver), at most central bus and tram stops (yellow vending machines) and at the service points (e.g. Postplatz, Pirnaischer Platz, Prager Straße, Albertplatz). Riding without a valid ticket will result in a fine.

You may also buy tickets via your mobile phone through DVB or Deutsche Bahn (DB): Handyticket. A subscription to one of the regional partners (DVB or DB) is sufficient. Careful, these tickets are for immediate use – not for buying them well in advance of your trip.

Various suburban trains (S-Bahn) and regional trains (Regionalbahn, Regional-Express) connect Dresden and the surrounding area and can also be used with regular VVO tickets and semester tickets. Travel centers in the Dresden Hauptbahnhof (main train station) and in Dresden-Neustadt will provide you with further information.
