Environmental Sticker for Coaches

Just like all other vehicles being driven in the centre of Berlin, long-distance buses and coaches must also have the green environmental sticker, and must comply with the green sticker standard. Travelling by bus is therefore not only convenient and comfortable, but also environment-friendly. Here you will find more tips for a sustainable trip to Berlin.

Important: Buses registered abroad also need the green sticker to be driven in the environmental zone.
Go to the pages of the Senate Department to see where the environmental zone is located.

Our page on the environmental zone (Umweltzone) provides information on getting the sticker, and on any exceptions to this rule.

Parking places for buses in Berlin

There are designated parking places for long-distance buses and coaches at train stations, at the airport, near to large hotels, and in the vicinity of convention centres, cultural institutions and tourist attractions all over the city. 
The most important stop for long-distance buses and coaches is the Berlin Central Coach Station (Zentraler Omnibus Bahnhof ZOB) opposite the exhibition centre.

But there are also large, designated parking places for buses at the Berlin Central Station, the Zoological Garden train station, the Spandau train station, the Brandenburg Gate, the Olympic stadium and the Charlottenburg Palace. Most of the parking places for buses are free of charge. Please also note the information provided on site.
