Your ÖBB zone tickets
For routes beyond the boundaries of the zones of individual transport associations, you will need an ÖBB zone ticket. This allows you to travel in 2nd class on the requested route as often as you wish during the ticket's period of validity. Against a surcharge, you can also avail yourself of the comfort offered by 1st class. The following zone tickets are available:
- Weekly ticket (valid for 7 days, transferable to other persons)
- Monthly ticket (valid for 30 days, transferable to other persons)
Free travel for school students and apprentices
Save money and learn something for life!
Students and apprentices pay almost nothing when they commute between their home and their school or training location.
All you need for this is a valid student identification card or apprentice card. And you need to pay your own contribution, which currently amounts to € 19.60 per school or apprenticeship year. With most transport associations, you can furthermore apply for a free transport pass. All you need is a confirmation from your parents and your school or training facility.
In addition to this, all transport associations offer the option of expanding the area in which this transport pass is valid to the entire federal state by either purchasing a surcharge ticket to your free pass or applying for such an enhancement and paying a higher price.
The free transport pass for students and apprentices is issued as a transport association ticket and applies to all public transport operators on the chosen route.
