Public transport

Vienna has a very good and efficient public transport system. You only need to buy one ticket to use tramway, underground, busses and even trains within the main zone "100", which covers the whole area of vienna (the airport is already outside Vienna, so you have to buy an extended ticket for 2 zones). All tickets can be bought at the red ticket machines (by cash or by maestro card), at ticket offices at bigger stations or event at some tabacco stores.

The following tickets are available:

  • Single trip (Einzelfahrschein): If you want to go from A to B just buy a single ticket for EUR 2,20. You need to stamp your ticket either at the entrance to the underground station or directly in the tramway or bus. Watch out for a blue validating machine.You can also buy multiple stripes of 4 or 8 single trips
  • Short term passes: You also can buy a ticket for 24 hours (EUR 7,60), 48 hours (EUR 13,30) or 72 hours (EUR 16,50). These tickets allow you to use the public transport for the given time beginning with the time of stamping (so if you stamp the 48 hours-ticket on sunday 15:30 you are allowed to use the transporting system until tuesday 15:30)
  • Multiple stripes for single days (8-Tage-Klimakarte): These tickets are valid for the day you validate them until the next day 1am. You may want to use this ticket if you travel with a group. The stripe contains 8 Tickets and costs EUR 38,40.
  • Weekly ticket: This ticket for EUR 16,20 allows you to use the transporting system for one week beginning on Monday. So if you arrive on Sunday you will need separate tickets for your arrival day as well ...
