Transportation in Vienna
Vienna's five U-Bahn lines whisk passengers around the city. U1 links Reumannplatz and Leopoldau to the city centre (Innere Stadt). U4 links Vienna's northern and western suburbs to the centre, with the U2 serving the Museum Quarter. U3 connects Ottakring in the west to Simmering in the southeast and U6 follows the north-south line of the Gürtel.
The city's extensive bus network takes commuters to outlying suburbs. Night owls can make use of 21 night buses which run between 3am and 5am.
Vienna's Old Town can easily be explored on foot. Walking also means that you don't miss any of the city's grand architecture or fine boutiques.
Rent your car
Several autobahn motorways lead into Vienna and once there you?ll find clear signs directing you to car parks. You can also park for short periods on the street with a pre-paid parking voucher that you can buy from tobacconists and Vienna?s metro stations.
Tickets bearing the acronym VOR can be used on any form of transport. A single ticket is valid for your entire journey even if you transfer between lines or mode of travel. Validate tickets to avoid a hefty fine. Vienna Card tourist pass holders are entitled to free public transport for 72 hours.
