Vienna has a well-developed public transport network. Buses, trains, trams and underground lines will take you almost anywhere in the city in no time at all. The Vienna public transport authority, Wiener Linien, operates five underground lines, 29 tram and 127 bus lines, 24 of which are night lines which operate between 00:30 and 05:00. The underground runs a 24 hour service on weekends and public holidays.
The City of Vienna is covered by a single zone, the core zone (Kernzone or “Zone 100”). A single ticket is valid for one way travel throughout the zone. You may change to different lines or modes of transport during the course of your journey, but you may not interrupt your journey.
You can buy tickets on the trams (but NOT in trains and buses!), from ticket machines at the various stations, or online through a mobile app (Qando). As you might need a ticket to transfer to and from the hotel, as well as for getting around, it is recommended that you purchase a day ticket.
One way ticket €2.40
24 hr ticket €8.00
48 hr ticket €14.10
72 hr ticket €17.10
Tickets must be validated. To validate your ticket, stamp it at the blue machines located at the entrance to the underground stations as well as on buses and trams. Tickets bought directly from the ticket machine on the tram are automatically validated and need not be stamped again.
