A subway every five minutes, only six minutes from St. Stephen's Cathedral to the Danube Island, an elaborate bus network throughout the city... the Viennese and their guests love the public transportation. The subways, trams, and buses of the Wiener Linien (Vienna's public transit company) are reliable, punctual, and safe. They connect the city center with the suburbs and make Vienna the city of convenient connectivity.
Around 2 Million Passengers Daily
The public transport network of Wiener Linien consists of five subway lines, 28 tram and 131 bus routes, as well as additional S-Bahn and regional trains that are operated by ÖBB, and transports nearly two million passengers from A to B every day.
Sustainability and climate protection are also top priorities at Wiener Linien: electric buses are in operation within the city center, and trams and subways are used as "mini power plants." The energy generated when braking is fed into the in-house power grid and can thus supply energy for the escalators and elevators at the stations.
