Stuttgart’s transportation network is operated by Stuttgarter Straßenbahnen AG (SSB) within the city; SSB operates bus lines, light rail (Stadtbahn) lines, a cog railway, and a funicular.  The region’s transportation network is overseen by Verkehrs- und Tarifverbund Stuttgart (VVS).

Stuttgart Buses

The Stuttgart bus system has 54 routes served by a fleet of about 250 vehicles. Most of the buses are built by Mercedes-Benz and many of them are articulated buses.

Stuttgart Stadtbahn

The Stuttgart Stadtbahn began service on September 28, 1985. Over the course of 27 years culminating in December 2007, the system was converted from a meter gauge to standard gauge. The system runs underground in the center of Stuttgart but it is not considered to be a u-bahn as in other cities.
