Getting around Munich has become much easier for English speaking visitors to the Bavarian capital. The Android and iOS App „App MVG Fahrinfo München“of the Münchner Verkehrsgesellschaft mbH, the Munich Transport Corporation, is now also available in an English language version, the corporation announced yesterday, May 27, 2016.
You can download “MVG Fahrinfo München” and “MVG more” to your smartphone or iPhone at Google Play or at the App Store. The App offers information on Munich’s U-Bahn, buses, tram, as well as on their CarSharing and MVG Rad (bicycle sharing) and you can use it to buy tickets via your smartphone.
A major factor behind Munich’s success is the city’s highly developed and highly functional urban transport system. MVG – Munich Transportation Corporation – plays a key role in this success story. Munich’s civic leaders realised long ago that a growing metropolis needs to adopt sound, long-term transport policies if it is to remain vital and attractive. This is the vision that has driven the strong commitment to developing a highly integrated underground, bus and tram public transport system.
MVG enjoys a close partnership with the Munich Verkehrs- und Tarifverbund (MVV – Munich Transport and Tariff Association). Other partners in the MVV include private companies with whom the corporation jointly operates scheduled bus services in Munich’s metropolitan area; the S-Bahn München, Munich’s urban rail system; other regional railway companies; a number of regional bus operators; and the Munich municipality. All parties work together to offer residents and visitors alike a well-designed, integrated public transport system that enjoys a ubiquitous presence in the cityscape, in the mass media and in the minds of the people.
