With the MVV express bus line X660 from campus to campus in 30 minutesNew connection between Garching and Freising

Just in time for the beginning of the winter semester at the universities, the new MVV express bus line X660 started on October 1, 2021. Thanks to the new connection passengers can travel with just a few stops from the Garching Research Campus to the Weihenstephaner Berg in Freising in just over half an hour.

The new X660 express bus line connects the two university locations in Garching and Freising quickly and directly. It runs every 40 minutes from Monday to Friday from 5.25 a.m. to 10.00 p.m. The journey between the two TUM locations is only about half an hour.

The line starts at the Garching-Forschungszentrum underground station. There are intermediate stops at three stops in Dietersheim, Mintraching and Achering. In the city of Freising, several stops are then served: Schlüterstraße, Freising (S), Weihenstephaner Straße, Weihenstephan, Am Staudengarten and Weihenstephaner Berg as the end point of the line.

"This line was a matter close to our hearts," said Freising's District Administrator, Helmut Petz, at a press conference on the commissioning on Friday. “It's great that we can put the bus into operation today, not only for the 3,000 or so students who commute between Weihenstephan and Garching, but also for the many people who“ live in Freising and work in Garching or Munich - or vice versa."
