Public transport

The public transport network in the Stuttgart region is operated by Verkehrsverbund Stuttgart (VVS), Stuttgarter Straßenbahnen AG (SSB) [de] and Deutsche Bahn (DB). Because the transport network in Stuttgart is so extensive, you do not need a car here. It is better to use the bus and train instead.
