Vienna is quite easy to get around as they have a good transport system that includes, underground trains, trams and buses. It’s also very easy to buy tickets for these and there are a good range of options, including 1, 2 and 3-day tickets, which are ideal if you’re here for a short stay.
We didn’t use the trams or buses, as the underground trains went everywhere that we needed to go. But tickets are valid for all three methods of transport.
How To Buy Tickets
We bought our tickets at one of the multi-lingual machine at the subway station. Just select your language and follow the instructions. First you need to choose your ticket type. We chose the 24/48/72-hour ticket option from this screen.
After the first screen, you’ll see the screen above. We chose 48-hour ticket here.
On the next screen you’ll see the ticket price and get to choose the number of tickets you want. You can see above that the 48-hour tickets cost EUR 26.60 for two.
Above is an example of a single journey ticket, which is EUR 2.20.
