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. 

Public transport in the city: Wiener Linien

  • WienMobil App
  • Maps for download
  • best option: 72h ticket (valid in the core zone of Vienna), ca. 18€
  • with the above mentioned ticket, you can use OEBB trains & Schnellbahn, Badner Bahn, bus, tram, underground/metro and most regional bus lines within city limits.
  • Note that the ticket doesn’t include airport buses, the Westbahn train and the City Airport Train (CAT).
  • Alternatively, you may install the WienMobil App to purchase (single) tickets via your smartphone.

Train network: OEBB

  • note that the “Westbahn” train is not part of the OEBB.

Airport Transport:

  • CAT (City Airport Train – non-stop transfer to the airport), ca. 19€ for one direction
  • some OEBB trains go to the airport too (with more stops in between, but cheaper), ca. 4-5€ for one direction
  • SBahn S7 (direction Hainburg-Wolfsthal) stops at the airport. You need an additional ticket to your core zone ticket from the border (Schwechat Stadt), which is ca. 2€. A ticket from the city centre to the airport via S7 is around 4€.
  • Vienna Airport Lines (Bus)
  • Note that the airport is located outside the core zone of Vienna.

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.

Food, Super Markets, Bakeries, etc.

There are a lot of nice stores in the vicinity of the ACDH-CH – here are just the most important ones.

Note that most of the shops close around 6 or 7pm (only supermarkets near the main tramway stations “Wien Mitte – Landstraße”, “Hauptbahnhof” and “Westbahnhof” have longer opening hours):
