In long-distance traffic there are over 100 trains daily available (national and international) with possibilities of wheelchair-transport.
Also in suburban traffic many trains are able to transport wheelchairs.
Multifunctional rail car
In the multifunctional rail car (Multifunktionswagen, MFW), a new concept for customers in a wheelchair has been implemented. With this, for the first time ever, it is possible for passengers requiring a wheelchair and a person accompanying them to travel comfortably in a couchette compartment in our ÖBB night trains. Further information on this travel option is available from our mobility service centre.
Currently, these rail cars are deployed in the following trains:
- EN 490-491 Vienna West - Hamburg Altona
- EN 466-467 Vienna West - Zürich Central Train Station
- EN 246-247 Vienna West - Bregenz
