The Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe is the main public transport company of Berlin, the capital city of Germany. It manages the city's U-Bahn underground railway, tram, bus, replacement services and ferry networks, but not the S-Bahn urban rail system.
The generally used abbreviation, BVG, has been retained from the company's original name, Berliner Verkehrs Aktiengesellschaft . Subsequently, the company was renamed Berliner Verkehrs-Betriebe. During the division of Berlin, the BVG was split between BVG and BVB , also known as the Volkseigenes Kombinat Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe . After reunification, the current formal name was adopted.
