Stuttgart has an extensive network of buses within the city and which are by the Stuttgarter Straßenbahnen AG or SSB. This is the same company that also runs services for light rail, funicular, and rack railways within the city. The bus network is quite extensive and connects many suburban areas outside the periphery of the city as well.
There are multiple cab and taxi companies within Stuttgart which can either be hired as a call taxi with on-spot hire or booked beforehand as a call taxi. App-based cab services are also available here. Some of the taxi cab companies are Neckar-Taxi GmbH, Taxi-Auto-Zentrale, Hofmann GmbH Bus und Taxi and many others.
Stuttgart has all the world-renowned car rental companies within the city such as Euro car, Avis, Enterprise Rent a Car, SIXT, Hertz besides other local companies. The local government also encourages tourists and locals to take up cycling and thus there are many private as well as public areas that offer bike rentals, thereby making it easy for tourists to rent bikes to explore Stuttgart.
Stuttgart doesn’t have a metro system, but it does have a light rail system known as the Stuttgart Stadtbahn. This in effect works as the subway system of the city as the network is quite extensive with 15 lines and 203 stations. Stuttgart also has funicular railways and a rack railway system in certain areas of the city.
Stuttgart has a well-developed Suburban Railways network known as the Stuttgart S-Bahn. This network has a few stations within the city although the major focus is on connecting it to suburban areas including the neighbouring towns of Rems-Murr-Kreis, Böblingen, Ludwigsburg and Esslingen. This network has seven lines along with 83 stations.
Stuttgart is a fairly large city, and there are no avenues for trekking and hiking through the city. However, bike rides from one tourist attraction in Stuttgart to another can be a great and eco-friendly way to explore the city. There are other areas close by as well where you can go for a trek, but these are a little on the outside of Stuttgart such as the Black Forest area.
