Passengers with manual wheelchairs


Tram network Our low-floor Combino and Flexity trams are equipped with a folding access ramp. Folding ramps and spaces for wheelchairs are located by the second door. All our other tram designs have at least low-floor access but no folding ramp.

Bus network There are buses with a folding ramp for ease of access on all our routes. All buses (except those on routes 35/45 and part of route 42) are standard or articulated buses and can be lowered at the kerb of the bus stop.

Passengers with electric wheelchairs


Tram network Our low-floor Combino and Flexity trams are equipped with a folding access ramp. Folding ramps and spaces for wheelchairs are located by the second door.

The use of this folding ramp is possible at most stops. These stops are identified with a blue wheelchair symbol either on the pole or on the stop’s sign itself. To help you plan your journey in advance, you can find the relevant leaflet here (in german) with all the information you need about the folding ramp capability of BVB stops. This brochure is continuously being updated (current version: October 2018). You can also get the leaflet at our Customer Centre at Barfüsserplatz (Barfi) or from your Driver.

All our other tram designs have at least low-floor access but no folding ramp. For this reason, it is not possible to transport passengers in electric wheelchairs on these vehicles for reasons of safety. We are always happy to help you with personalised travel planning.
