Public transport in Vienna

You can buy a ticket that is valid for all of the public transport network in Vienna for 1,70 Euro. You can purchase that ticket over VOR counters at each entrance and exit of major subway stations, at "Trafik" (tobacco) shops, and from vending machines in major subway and railway stations of the network or even in trams and buses. Most of the vending machines accept bank notes as well. Be careful that you validate your ticket at the respective machines to be found at the entrance of the subway lines or at the entrances inside of buses and trams of the network. You may change between buses, trams, and subway or even railway with one ticket at any time junction in Vienna for one route.

The subway system in Vienna is user-friendly. Train intervals are 3-6 minutes during working hours, 6-10 minutes outside working hours.The lines are color coded to allow easy orientation. The closest underground station to the University of Technology is Karlsplatz, which can be reached by subway lines U1 (red), U2 (purple), and U4 (green).

For more information about public transport check the website of the Wiener Linien (German).
