The S-Bahn connects the region with the Carinthian central region. This means: a dense offering of rail connections on several lines.
ÖBB operates 4 S-Bahn lines in Carinthia
- Klagenfurt Central Station - Völkermarkt-Kühnsdorf - Bleiburg - St. Paul - Wolfsberg
A further shortening of the train intervals between Klagenfurt Central Station and Völkermarkt-Kühnsdorf will be introduced with the timetable for 2017. 7 additional trains will be operating in each direction. From 6 March 2017 onwards, extensive construction work will be carried out on the route to Wolfsberg (Koralmbahn). Because of this, all train connections will be starting and ending in St. Paul as of 6 March 2017. From St. Paul to Wolfsberg (Bad St. Leonhard) and back, a rail replacement bus service will be arranged.
- Villach - Arnoldstein - Nötsch - Hermagor
The S4 will be introduced this year: On working days, from Monday through Friday, at hourly intervals in the direction of Hermagor from 05:15 a.m. until 09:15 p.m. and in the direction of Villach from 04:42 a.m. until 09:42 p.m. On Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays at two-hour intervals, offering connections to the long-distance routes towards Vienna and Salzburg.
