I would like to know what they say in the S-Bahn that sounds like "aussteck links/rechts" but in the dictionary the closer to this I've found is:

Aussteck: unplugging

could someone explain what they are really saying?

I know it as Austieg in Fahrtrichtung rechts/links (Exit on left/right in the direction of train). – knut Mar 25 '14 at 19:21
I wonder where you found "Aussteck" because it doesn't exist. The equivalent of "unplugging" would be "ausstecken". – Martin Schwehla Mar 20 '15 at 7:46

They're saying „Ausstieg links/rechts“. Ausstieg is a noun derivative from the verb aussteigen. Basically they're just telling you on which side to get out, i.e. where the exit is.

»Ausstieg« = »Ausgang» = english »Exit« – Hubert Schölnast Mar 26 '14 at 7:45
