On the map above you can see the already existing "S-Bahn-Stammstrecke" and the planned "2. S-Bahn-Stammstrecke".

The already existing tunnel has the following stations: Hauptbahnhof (main station), Karlsplatz, Marienplatz, Isartor, Rosenheimer Platz, Ostbahnhof (not underground)

The new tunnel will have the following stations: Hauptbahnhof (main station), Marienhof (north Marienplatz), Ostbahnhof

Because of the lower density of the stations the new tunnel will decrease the travel time in the innercity-centre and be used by express lines.

Here an interesting folder with figures and so on (but unfortunately in german): http://www.mvv-muenchen.de/web4archi...l_download.pdf

Now Munich's subway has a route length of 103,1 km and is serving exactly 100 stations. It's ridership is 1 million daily. It is the first time since 1965 that there is NO subway construction in Munich.

Not really, there is no separate thread for the S-Bahn and U-Bahn system respectively - which is on many tracks similar to a classic Metro. Both are systems of heavy rail mass transport, while frequencies of service varies from 20' to 2,5' during daytime.

Maybe a mod could change the topic to MUNICH | Public Transports because there is not that much interest on Munich related topics, so we may concentrate on one thread.

I disagree. The S-Bahn in Munich isn't near metro-like bar one short stretch. It isn't even a real S-Bahn as it uses mainline tracks for most of its network. Neither are service frequencies on its branches anywhere near what is expected of a metro.

It also serves a different purpose. The S-Bahn is virtually a local stop service for the wider metropolitan area. It connects towns as far as 40 km away to the central Munich while the Underground is a municipal network that serves the city along with trams and buses.

To conceive that metros as heavy rail system is technically wrong. Metros have their own standards which are usually lighter than mainline standards. Metros in Germany are built and run by a different legal regulations.

Renaming this thread is a good idea anyway.

Munich - Tramway
Munich - U-Bahn
Munich - S-Bahn
Munich - Long distance comunter rail

We should just create

Munich - Public Transport


But will still find tons of threads named

xyz city - Subway where they are discussing a light rail or tram system having some underground stations

or

zyx city - Metro where they discuss everything but not a metro system regarding "German standards"

Can someone tell me the name of the tram station you see (quickly) between 2:06-2:14? Is it a bus terminus of some sort, that also doubles up as a tram stop?

That is the surface part of the station you see in the first minutes. The station is called "Münchner Freiheit". 2 subway lines, bus lines and the tram to Sendling, one of the newest lines (2009). The station was renovated in anticipation of the new tram line.

Yup. I took note of what you said and checked out Google Maps and wow it is really close indeed. (proximity or distance)

Although, I also noticed another train station is also close to BMW (I think the named is "Olympiazentrum" if I'm not mistaken).

So it looks like there are two train stations that are available. Nice

Anyways, thanks for the info there

Munich's second cross rail for suburban trains is approved. Construction will start in 2014. Opening is scheduled for 2020. Some information is already provided in #106.

http://www.stmwivt.bayern.de/pressei.../11/pm672.html


Beside the second cross rail running from the east to the west the project "U9" will provide a 4th subway trunk within the city center from north to the south. Projects come under pressure according to newly published population outlook drawing 1.7 million for the municipal of Munich situated within an urban area exceeding 3 million by the year 2020.
