The Vienna transport system is vast and efficient. The system consists of the U-Bahn, buses, streetcars, and local trains. You can buy tickets and get maps at the Vienna Public Transport Information Center at five locations around the city. (01/790-9100).

The U-Bahn (subway) is a very fast way to get across town or get to the suburbs. This system has five lines – U1, U2, U3, U4, and U6. Three of the lines converge at Karlsplatz. The U2 traces part of the Ring, the U4 connects with Schonbrunn, and the U1 connects with Stephansplatz. The U3 connects to Stephansplatz as well as Westbahnhof.

The Trams are red-and-white and they offer a great overall view of the city. Lines 1 and 2 will take you to all of the sights on the Ringstrasse. Lind D goes to the Sudbahnhof. Line 18 connects the Westbahnhof and the Sudbahnhof.

Buses travel all across Vienna. Tickets are available for all of the transport systems, and an unlimited ride ticket is available that’s good for 24 or 72 hours. Best of all, a Vienna Card is available that is very flexible and allows unlimited travel as well as discounts at museums, restaurants, and shops across Vienna.

Taxis are available but can be rather expensive. They are easy to find in the city center – taxi stands are well marked by signs, or you can call for a ride.

Horse-Drawn Carriage is, of course, a historic and romantic way to explore Vienna. Carriages are available and typically offer 20 minute to 40 minute tours.

Biking is a preferred form of transport for many in Vienna. There are over 250 km (155 miles) of marked bicycle paths within the city. There are additionally bike rental locations at the Prater and along the banks of the Danube Canal.
