Vienna currently has five subway lines with 109 stations on 83 km of track, 28 tram routes and 131 bus routes. The total public transportation network amounts to over 1,150 km in length. About 1 billion passengers are transported annually. Further investments in rail transportation are planned in line with the city's future-oriented transport policy. This should allow the constant growth in passenger numbers to be managed properly in the future as well. At the same time, further outlying districts are to be connected to the city center. Wiener Linien is choosing to modernize its fleet of buses by deploying increasing numbers of electric buses. The integration of modern technology is the order of the day: the WienMobil app lets mobile users know when the next tram, subway train or bus departs. Real-time information for all stops, integrated timetable information and disruption information enable users to get around on public transport without complication.
Vienna can also be admired on over 1,379 km of cycle paths, cycle lanes and cycle routes through low-traffic zones. Visitors who would like to view the city and its attractions from the saddle of a bicycle and in the fresh air should ideally climb on board a Citybike: The Citybike network is also easy to use for visitors to Vienna. The procedure is simple: Register directly at a Citybike terminal with a credit card (MasterCard, Visa, JCB), choose a bike and pedal away. For a one-off registration fee of €1, users have access to 1,500 bicycles distributed between 121 stations. The first hour is free, after which a usage fee is charged.
