U-Bahn replaced with buses next week

Due to work taking place on the line, the U-Bahn U3 will be replaced with buses for the next two weeks.

From Monday, 13th August until Sunday, 26th August (2018) the rails at “Oberursel Bahnhof” are being replaced, so the trains will not be running between “Hohemark” and “Weißkirchen Ost”.  A replacement bus service will be in operation, with buses running every 15 minutes in the daytime and every 30 minutes at evenings and weekends.  From Thursday, 23rd August until Sunday, 26th August there are also no trains between “Weißkirchen Ost” and “Niederursel”, so the bus service will be extended to meet trains on the U8 route.

U-Bahn replaced with buses in Frankfurt in July

Due to work taking place on the line, the U-Bahn U3 will not be able to travel the entire length of the line to Frankfurt-Südbahnhof.

From Saturday, 1st July until Sunday, 16th July, 2017, the U3 will terminate at Heddernheim.  There, a replacement bus service will take passengers to Hügelstraße.  The section between Hügelstraße and Südbahnhof will operate as a shuttle service.

From Monday, 17th July until Sunday, 30th July, 2017, the U3 will terminate Hügelstraße.  A replacement bus service will take passengers to Dornbusch from where the shuttle service will continue to Südbahnhof.

To get to the centre of Frankfurt quicker, it may be better to take the S-Bahn S5 from Oberursel.  To reach some parts of the city, a better alternative may be to change to the U9 in Niederursel, travel to Ginnheim, and then take the tram line 16.

 

U-Bahn replaced with buses next week

Due to work taking place on the line, the U-Bahn U3 will be replaced with buses next week.

From Monday, 24th April until Sunday, 30th April (2017) work is being carried out on the crossing at the Zimmersmühlenweg.  As a result the U3 will not be running between Niederursel and Hohemark.

Instead, a replacement bus service will be running with stops near to the U-Bahn stops.  However after Weißkirchen-Ost the bus will travel to Riedberg and the terminus of the U8 line, from where it will be possible to travel to Niederursel and onwards to Frankfurt.

The bus takes longer to complete the journey than the U-Bahn normally does, so it may be necessary to travel earlier in order to make connections with the S-Bahn in Oberursel.

 

U-Bahn replaced with buses at weekend

Due to work taking place on the line, the U-Bahn U3 will be replaced with buses in the coming days as follows:

Thursday, 6th August & Friday, 7th August: between Oberursel Bahnhof and Hohemark

Saturday, 8th August & Sunday, 9th August: between Weißkirchen Ost and Hohemark.

Bus stops are situated near the platforms along the route.

Currently the main S-Bahn tunnel in Frankfurt is also closed for signalling work, so that the S5 trains terminate either at Frankfurt-Rödelheim or Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof.  They are not stopping at Frankfurt-West, Messe or Galluswarte between 10pm and 5am.
