Nimble as a fox: the ÖBB bi-level push-pull train (DOSTO) is deployed for rapid regional transport in metropolitan areas, for example for commuters travelling to and from Vienna. It can reach a maximum speed of 140 km/h.
Each ÖBB bi-level push-pull train is equipped with a multi-purpose compartment for the transportation of wheelchairs, pushchairs and bicycles.
The ÖBB bi-level push-pull train is mainly in operation in the eastern region around Vienna, as well as in Vorarlberg and Carinthia.
A train set includes 1 control car and 4 intermediate cars. The push-pull train can be either pulled or pushed by an ÖBB locomotive. The bi-level cars are also used without a control car with a locomotive.
