Departure Procedure and Sounds

"Zurücktreten bitte", spoken live by the driver, who is at that time out on the platform with a wired microphone, watching the closing doors. On the newer U-Bahn trains, there is a high and low tone for the next station announcement, with a pre-recorded female voice: "[ding-dong] Nächster Halt – Plärrer – Umsteigemöglichkeit zur Linie U1. In Fahrtrichtung rechts aussteigen".



Line U2 train departing from Hauptbahnhof (central station).
