First operating in 1971 as a way of modernising Munich's public transport system before the 1972 Olympic Games, the U-Bahn is a rapid transit rail network with eight lines serving 96 different stations.
The U-Bahn operates daily from 4:15 am to 1 am, with trains running every 5 to 10 minutes. On Fridays, Saturdays and the nights before public holidays, trains run all through the night.
Tickets for Munich's public transport network are the same for every mode of transport. Prices range from €2.90 for a single ticket covering one zone, and from €6.70 for a one-day travelcard around the inner city area.
