REX200

Affordable, fast and comfortable!

Since 10 December 2012, the REX200 commuter trains will be operating in addition to the hourly REX and regional trains on the western route from Vienna West Station - Wien Hütteldorf - Tullnerfeld - St. Pölten Hbf - Loosdorf - Melk - Pöchlarn - Ybbs an der Donau - Amstetten and in some cases on to St. Valentin. From Krems/Danube to Vienna West and back there also operates a REX200-train from monday to friday. From Monday through Friday, five REX200 trains in either direction are at your service.

The REX200 is affordable!
Rising petrol costs and parking fees make commuting by car more and more expensive. In addition to this, you also need to calculate the insurance premiums, as well as repair for wear and tear. If you use the REX200, you may no longer need your second car. And you will most definitely save a lot of money, every time you travel.

The REX200 is fast!
It travels at 200 km/h - and never gets stuck in a traffic jam! No car is allowed to go this fast. And does anybody really enjoy the stop-and-go traffic at Vienna’s western gateway? Searching for a parking spot costs time and nerves, and parking itself costs money. With the REX200, you save up to 40 minutes daily compared to other commuter trains - which adds up to an additional 4 weeks of holidays.* Compared to a commute by car, you save up to 36 minutes.
* Basis:45 work weeks and 5 work days = 4 work weeks

The REX200 is comfortable!
The premium-quality air-conditioned compartment cars and open cars are equipped with comfortable seats, inviting you to doze off, sleep or read. Or simply kick back and relax. Each compartment has an electrical outlet, and you can check your e-mails in peace. You are travelling safely on the tracks of the new western route and don’t need to pay attention to traffic, which is getting heavier every day.
