Berlin was restored as the German capital right after the unification of the two German states in 1990 and has about 3.5 million inhabitants.
In East Berlin, however, the S-Bahn became the backbone of the transport system and new extensions were built from Grünau to Königs Wusterhausen (1951), to Strausberg Nord (1956), to Schönefeld Airport (1961), to Ahrensfelde (1976-82) and to Wartenberg (1984/85).
The Greater Berlin area is divided into 3 zones, zone A covers everything within the S-Bahn ring line, zone B the rest of Berlin city, and zone C the surroundings included in the tariff system.
