Berlin's transportation is a unified system combining the U and S-Bahns of West Berlin with busses and the trams of East Berlin. The U and S-Bahns are the underground (U) system and the suburban trains (S). All of these can be accessed with the same tickets and everything is run by the BVG. You'll mostly be travelling in the AB region, and tickets for that cost two euros for a "einzelfahrausweis", or single ticket, which is valid for two hours after validation. For e5.60 you can also buy a day ticket, which is valid until 3am the next day. If your ticket isn't automatically franked with the date and time, like the ones you buy on the machines in trams, then you will need to validate your ticket in a machine, or else risk a fine. You will see this validating machines as you get on, but just watch what the locals do if you aren't sure.
