The ÖBB Cityjet is fully air-conditioned and offers so-called "Austria seats". These comfortable seats were manufactured based on specifications derived from passenger surveys. They have adjustable seats, ergonomic headrests and armrests. Each seat is equipped with a reading lamp, an electrical outlet and a fold-out laptop table. On the ÖBB Cityjet, passenger information is provided via 26 inch information screens.

With the introduction of the ÖBB Cityjet, ÖBB address the different needs of their passengers. Through the use of various types of lighting and equipment, different usage areas (such as communication, work, relaxation) were created in these trains sets featuring a design in red-white-red. A service zone offers room for wheelchair users, pushchairs and bicycles.

Comfortable low-floor entrances allow easy access without stairs or ramps. Wide portals, open and quiet passages, as well as strong colour contrasts for the visually impaired make travelling by rail easier for persons with limited mobility.


There are 2 versions of ÖBB Cityjets: the sets for regional trains offer 259 seats and 4 entrances per side. For S-Bahn operation, in particular in the Vienna area, we use sets with 244 seats and 6 entrances per side.
