Berlin buses are operated by BVG , the public bus service network of Berlin, Germany. Opened in 1846, it is the oldest public transport service of the city. Its fleet consists of some 1,300 vehicles, which cover 300,000 kilometres per day.

30 October 1846 saw the first bus services from the Concessionierte Berliner Omnibus-Compagnie . In 1868, a new company was created, the ABOAG ( Allgemeinen Berliner Omnibus Actien Gesellschaft ) which on 1 January 1929 merged with other Berlin public transport companies to create the BVG.

After the opening of Berlin Wall, the transport companies were no longer able to cope up with the traffic, and so once again, solo buses by other transport companies and 100 hired coaches were used. The 3-digit numbering system was unified and implemented on June 2, 1991, just before the reunification of BVG in 1 January 1992.
