The new VBN app offers timetables for all buses and trams in Lower Saxony, Bremen, Hamburg and Rostock. Train information is available for all of Germany. Information from the mass of carriers is already available in real time. That means you can see if your train, bus or tram will be on time or delayed.
The app now also gives you real-time flight information from Bremen Airport, while you are on your way.
You can also access information about connections, platforms, routes on foot or maps of routes.
Furthermore, you can access an overview of the stations and travel options in your immediate vicinity based on your current location. And last but not least, you can call up information about the various stations.
The VBN app will keep you up to date - simply subscribe to the push service, and you will receive latest news about your daily connections. All information regarding your selected route will be messaged to you automatically, once you have configured your subscription service to your requirements.
If you are ever lost and do not know, where the closest station might be, simply use the augmented reality function and look around with the camera of your device.
Additionally you can use widgets to have an even faster access to your favourites and real time information.
Real-time information is available for the following carriers:
Outside the Lower Saxony transport association real-time information is also available for the Hamburger Hochbahn (U-Bahn / metro), regional busses in Braunschweig und the trams in Rostock.
The app will access your contacts so that you will be able to select an address as starting point or destination for the connection search function. This access right will not be needed for any other purpose. You can change this access right at any time via the settings.
Should you decide to subscribe to the push service an anonymous device ID will be stored on our server in order to allow us to send you the requested information.
VBN is working continuously on the further improvement of our app, and we are looking forward to receiving your suggestions and opinions. You can help improve our services to you! Send your feedback to [email protected]
Thank you in advance!
The VBN app was funded by Landesnahverkehrsgesellschaft Niedersachsen GmbH (LNVG) and Zweckverband Verkehrsverbund Bremen/Niedersachsen (ZVBN).
The integration of the flight data was realized in the project Green Sustainable Airports (GSA) in the context of the Interreg IV B North Sea Region Programme, supported by the European Union – The European Regional Development Fund.
- Better integration of the flight data for Bremen airport - now reachable through the connection details
