S-Bahn Vienna/Lower Austria/Burgenland

The S-Bahn is an important part of public transport in the eastern region of Austria

Light green and vintage pink are the new colours that will make the two most frequented S-Bahn lines in Vienna recognisable in the future. This includes the main line from Floridsdorf to Meidling (S1, S2, S3 & S4) as well as the suburban line from Handelskai to Hütteldorf (S45).

The S-Bahn is an essential part of the inner-city transport network in Vienna. Following the 5 underground lines in Vienna, the two S-Bahn lines now have their own colours on the traffic maps as well as a correspondingly colour-coded guidance systems in the stations.

Both S-Bahn lines are specially marked in green and vintage pink on all ÖBB and Wiener Linien maps, thus making it even easier for passengers to find their way around. Both the rapid connection map, the “overhead map” on the underground doors and the Vienna metropolitan area public transport map will have the same design in the future. In addition, the 19 stations of the two most important Viennese S-Bahn lines from Floridsdorf to Meidling and from Handelskai to Hütteldorf also received a new colour guidance system.

Vienna’s S-Bahn railway  between Floridsdorf and Meidling runs on average every 4 minutes and is comparable to the travel time intervals of the city’s underground system. Every train stops at each station, with the exception of the exception of the S7 airport line, which branches off from the main line at Vienna Rennweg.

The suburban line (S45) between Handelskai and Hütteldorf also takes you through or into the city quickly. The S-Bahn runs daily in 10 to 15 minute intervals.

No extra charge

All S-Bahn lines in Vienna's metropolitan area can also be used with the annual ticket and all other VOR tickets (traffic association for the eastern region) for the Vienna core zone.

Vienna’s S-Bahn: A story of success

Vienna’s rapid railway system S-Bahn has been in operation since 17 January 1962. From the very beginning, the S-Bahn with its main line from Vienna/Floridsdorf to Vienna/Meidling was designed to connect the surrounding areas of Vienna with the city. This transport policy decision had a far-reaching impact on the development of the entire eastern region.

Vienna’s S-Bahn in figures:

  • 89,003 million local transport passengers
  • 1,410 local transport trains per day
  • 10* S-Bahn lines
  • 890 S-Bahn trains per day

* total number of S-Bahn lines in the eastern region (Vienna, Lower Austria, Burgenland); 10 (some cross provincial borders)
