Public transport in Vienna is convenient and safe. Trams and underground trains generally run until midnight on weekdays and throughout the night on weekends. Information on first and last trains is signposted at each station. There are also night buses.
Inside each bus, underground train or tram there is a list of all the stops on that line. The routes with all stops are signposted at bus and tram stops.

Ticket vending machines take Euro-notes and credit cards but it is advisable to have some small change on you. Zone 1 (“Kernzone”) covers all of Vienna, while Zone 2 also covers the outskirts of Vienna including Vienna Airport (Schwechat). Vending machines are available in all underground and train stations and can be switched to English and several other languages. A single trip inside Vienna costs 2,20€ and can be bought by pressing the “Einzelfahrt Vollpreis”-Button. Tickets are also available at newsagents, tobacconists (“Trafik”), or ticket offices at railway stations. Single trip tickets are also available but more expensive on some trams and buses (note, you will need coins for the vending machines).
