S-Bahn Nürnberg - Liniennetz.png

The Nuremberg S-Bahn (German: S-Bahn Nürnberg) is an S-Bahn network covering the region of Nuremberg, Fürth and Erlangen which was founded in 1987 and is now integrated in the Transport Association Region Nuremberg (Verkehrsverbund Großraum Nürnberg). The full length of the four current lines is about 229 kilometres.

The S-Bahn trains are operated by DB Regio Mittelfranken, a subsidiary of DB Regio Bayern. From December 2018 the service was due to be taken over by National Express Germany, however it withdrew from the bidding process in October 25, 2016, so the lines will continue to be operated by DB Regio Mittelfranken for the foreseeable future.

The service between Fürth and Erlangen-Brück has been marred by frequent delays and service restrictions due to the slow construction for four-track expansion. No completion date is given.
