Route change in Tram No. 1 and No. 2 Bus,tram&Metro Review

Just take note that since early 2009, the trams no. 1 and no. 2 no longer just go around the Ring-strasse. Due to some change in the route plan, the tram lines No. 1, which used to loop round the historic centre, and No. 2, which travels it counter-clockwise, will now branch off to other parts of the city. Therefore, you have to be careful to change trams at certain stops. Please ask the tram drivers for more information.

By the way, you can buy tram tickets from a machine at the front of the tram, but you must have correct change.

Excellent Public Transportation Bus,tram&Metro Review

Vienna has excellent public transportation. The transports are comfortable, always punctual and frequent (especially during the work rush hours; 3-5 minutes intervals). It is very convenient to use the public transport within the City. With one ticket, you can ride the underground trains/metros, buses and trams - as long as it is for one journey and/or within 60 minutes, whichever is earlier.

Vienna has 5 Metro or Underground Lines and they are numbered accordingly; for example, U1 (red line), U2 (blue line), U3 (orange), U4 (green), U6 (brown). Apparently, there is no U5!

One-way journey ticket (~60 minutes) would cost Euro 1.80 (Zone 1) and a one-day (24-hour) ticket will cost Euro 5 - 6. You can buy your ticket from the ticket machines located in all the train stations. After you buy the ticket, you have to validate your ticket on the blue stamping machines located by the entrance of the trains. If you do not validate your ticket, you will be fined by the ticket controller if you get caught. A stiff fine of Euro 60+ will be charged immediately.
