It's Knowing Where To Look
The Münchner Verkehrs- und Tarifverbund (MVV; Munich Transport and Tariff Association[) is the transit authority of the city of Munich, the capital of the German state of Bavaria. Its jurisdiction covers the city and its surrounding area, responsible for the Munich S-Bahn commuter trains, the Munich U-Bahn, the Munich tramway and buses.
The MVV coordinates transport and fares in area comprising the city of Munich and eight surrounding districts. It is jointly owned by the state of Bavaria, the city of Munich and the eight surrounding districts.
So MVV is, effectively, the Greater Munich PTE working with transport operators to ensure a coordinated level of service and inter-operator fares throughout the region.
Transport services are provided by over 40 companies. These include the Bayerische Oberlandbahn, the Deutsche Bahn that also operates the S-Bahn, the Münchner Verkehrsgesellschaft (MVG) that operates the U-Bahn, tramway and city buses, together with multiple operators of regional trains and buses.
Why the MVV web site is prioritised by the dreaded Googe, whilst MVG is dealt with more secretively, is known only to the bleary-eyed programers in the bowels of the earth at Google HQ.
As you might expect from Teutonic Technology, the MVG web site is beautifully designed with an absolute MINIMUM of clutter. Here is the home page main index which appears below a few headline scrolling graphics (which can easily be ignored!).
fbb is always a bit suspicious of computer translating routines. What, for example, are "Subscriptions"? Here they mean "Season Tickets", a reasonable guess at the German word (actually French) " Abonnements "
fbb decided not to try Japanese ...
