bus and tram in Heidelberg
the most common way to get from here to there in the city
Buses and trams (Strassenbahn or Stadtbahn) are the main form of transportation in Heidelberg, with the center hub at Bismarktplatz in the Altstadt. Individual tickets are available, but there are many special passes that make it much more affordable and efficient to get around. Individual tickets can be purchased at ticket machines or with the driver, and passes can be purchased at the ticket counters. Maps of each bus and tram route can be found at every stop.
The Rhine-Neckar transportation website, http://www.vrn.de, contains basic information in English. There is also a schematic map as well as a georaphical map of the bus and tram lines.
