The Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (German: Bundesministerium für Verkehr und digitale Infrastruktur), abbreviated BMVI, is a cabinet-level ministry of the Federal Republic of Germany.

The Ministry itself has about 1300 employees. At the top is the Federal Minister, and there are three Parliamentary Secretaries and two civil servant undersecretaries. The ministry oversees 63 downstream agencies and authorities[2] where around 25,000 people work[3]

The agency was formed through the merger of the former Federal Ministry of Transport and the Federal Ministry of Regional Planning, Building and Urban Development, both established in 1949. The merged ministry was at first named Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Housing until it adopted the name Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Development (BMVBS) in 2005. The current BMVI originated by renaming the BMVBS through an organizational decree by the Merkel III Cabinet on December 17, 2013.
