"BUS" Bus Tram & Metro Tip by mel_bee

Bus Tram & Metro, Vienna: 196 reviews and 261 photos


Vienna?s bus network covers the city very well. Some buses use the same route in both directions but some buses do a huge loop and it?s a bit harder to find the bus stop back in the other direction. Where the bus is going is shown on the front, if you have any problems, most drivers speak some English. During the journey the recorded message (and sometimes a written message) will announce the name of the stop (but always check it is the right one as sometimes they are out of sync with the stops). Most bus stops have a list of all the stops with the time it takes to get there as well as a timetable and local map for ease of reference once you get off. The best bus is probably the 13a as it connects the west of Vienna with shopping in the Mariahilferstrasse and the South station. Other good buses are the 38a to Grinzing/Kahlenberg and 68a to Oberlaa Park.
If you are on a shoestring budget then its good to know that nightline night buses are now free if you have a valid travel pass for 24 hours/week/month/year. The buses run all over the place at half hour intervals all night
