Public Transit in Vienna

Public transit around Vienna is excellent. Wiener Linien is the municipal transit authority. Tickets and passes cover all city train and subway services and nearly all tram and bus services. 

How it works

The four main forms of transport are U-Bahn (subway), Schnellbahn or S-Bahn (local train), Straßenbahn (tram) and Autobus (bus). Tickets and passes are independent of your mode of travel: a single ticket from A to B, for example, covers tram, city train, subway and bus for that journey. 

Vienna works on an honesty system with no ticket barriers at stations and no formal, permanent ticket checks on the subway, local trains, trams and buses. However, conductors and transit authorities may ask to see your Fahrschein (ticket) and you will incur a fine if you cannot produce it.

Where to buy tickets

Buy your tickets from ticket offices in the main stations, ticket machines in stations, the Wiener Linien online store or app, and (for some very basic tickets) from Trafik newsagents/tobacconists.

Some of the tickets you buy need to be validated in a stamping machine before boarding. Whether you need to do so should be relatively clear from the ticket.

Transit + Tourism

If you plan to stay in Vienna and attend some tourist attractions, consider the Vienna City Card, a public transit pass designed for visitors. 
This 24, 48 or 72-hour network travel card for the city also qualifies you for various discounts across a 7-day period. Just about anything you’re likely to visit, watch or see offers some kind of small reduction with the Vienna City Card.
