The global headquarters of Bombardier Transportation have been situated in Berlin since 2002 and employ around 450 people from 30 countries. An urban centre of some 3.4 million people, Berlin looks back on a long and varied history as one of the great European railway hubs, which brought a range of innovations to public mass transportation as far back as the late 19th century. Berlin has always been famous for its fast pace – and much of this is attributed to its outstanding public transportation network. From trams and metros to regional trains, many of these vehicles originated from Bombardier Transportation. Based on this historic and unique past, we set out to shape the future of railway technology, because today more than ever, cities and regions are in need of safe, comfortable, reliable and modern rail transportation systems. We are building these products not only for Berlin, but for the world.

The global headquarters of Bombardier Transportation are located on Schöneberger Ufer 1 in Berlin. Since 1895, the neo-Renaissance building in the heart of the capital has been a landmark of German rail history. Originally home to the Royal Prussian Railway Directorate and later occupied by the Imperial Railway Directorate, both were responsible for regulating the rail traffic in Berlin. After the Second World War, the building was occupied by Deutsche Reichsbahn. In the late 1950s it became a clinic for railway employees. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, between 1991 and 2002 the striking, red-brick building served as Deutsche Bahn's Berlin headquarters. After extensive restoration, it was re-opened in 2006 as the global headquarters of Bombardier Transportation.
