The Schöneicher-Rüdersdorfer Straßenbahn is a short, islolated tramway, located in Schöneiche, part of the Berlin/Brandenburg metropolitan region. The line is in Zone B and C of the VBB tariff system, and is numbered Line 88. Constructed in 1910 to connect to the Berlin S-bahn, it has not been extended since, nor is it physically connected to the nearby tram lines of the Berlin city tram system (lines 60 and 61).

From a loop on the north side of Friedrichshagen S-bhf, the tracks follow the Schöneicher Landstraße, before entering the town of Schöneiche. The line is a mix of mostly street running and some roadside private-right-of-way. There is a single depot located near Dorfstraße stop. The line terminates in the town of Rüdersdorf at a loop. The total route length is 14.1km.

Operated on the line are several types of vehicles. The service is primarily held down by three partly-low-floor Tatra KT4DNF trams, built 1987-1990, and purchased second-hand from Cottbus (Germany) and Szeged (Hungary). Recently delivered are three fully low-floor Transtech Artic trams (delivered 2019-2020). Other cars still on the property include several high-floor Düwag GT6 trams (second-hand from Heidelberg).
