Frankfurt's public transportation system

S-Bahn Station - Public transportation association FrankfurtThe Rhine-Main Transport Association (RMV) is Europe’s largest public transport association and Frankfurt’s most important mode of travel. The S-Bahn Rhein-Main (in operation since 1978) comprises nine commuter railway lines, 145 trains and 260 kilometres of track, all of which combine to service up to 350,000 passengers a day while reaching a maximum speed of 120 km/h. Meanwhile, the Verkehrsgesellschaft Frankfurt (VGF), Frankfurt’s municipal transport authority, is in charge of seven subway lines, eight streetcar or tram lines, 42 bus lines (plus nine night-time bus lines) and 670 stops, guaranteeing that Frankfurt am Main is always on the move. Some 1,200 drivers are on the road from 4 a.m. till 2 a.m., making sure that their customers reach their destination at virtually all hours of the day. During rush hour, over 330 vehicles are in operation. On weekends, when Frankfurt’s cultural diversity attracts countless night-owls and party-goers to the city centre, eight night-time busses running between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. ensure that they all get home safe and sound.

Park & Ride (P + R) car parks

You’ll find P+R car parks at the various access roads leading into Frankfurt. Drivers may park their cars there and then take advantage of the bus and commuter train services to reach downtown Frankfurt quickly and easily – perfect for travellers wanting to get to their downtown destination directly and with a minimum of hassle.
