Notes: Easy Jet have their own Terminal (B), which can be a bit confusing, because there is no reference to their flights in the main one (Terminal A). There is also an Information point there and a bookshop/newstand etc which sells maps, guides and the BVG Welcome Cards. All buses depart from the upper level of terminal A. It is a short walk from terminal A and serves mainly Air Berlin. Rental Cars, Parking and taxis can be found on the lower level, although taxis are also available on the upper level. Using the ticket machines in the airport, first select English, then 'Local Traffic' then Berlin AB. Tickets must be validated in a special machine before use, and then are valid for 2 hours on buses & trains throughout the city. NOTE: The Express buses X9 and TXL are a fast and cheap way of getting to the city centre.
They cover all travel on the S-bahn, U-bahn, Trams, and all Buses. ◊There are trolleys/carts (at a cost) to use to get to the nearby railway station.
