The public transportation system in Vienna is working great and is ideal in a town with as big distances between attractions and activities as Vienna. In every metrostation you can get hold of your tickets for the public transportation and we highly recommend the usage of a 24-hour, a 48-hour or a 72-hour card as you come to Vienna. These tickets needs to be validated as you use them the first time. These tickets can be used on trams and buses in addition to the five metro lines.
Public transportation prices:
24-hour card: appx. 6 Euro
48-hour card: appx. 10 Euro
Vienna Card (72 hours): appx. 19 Euro (includes great discounts to attractions, restaurants etc.)
