The CAT ticket is only valid for the CAT. For the public transport within Vienna you need an extra ticket.

Here the information about the different tickets for Vienna

But if you get the much cheaper, though a little slower, S7 train from the airport the ticket (€4.20) includes public transport to your destination.

The CAT has an alternative suggestion in which it includes return ticket + Vienna transport ticket for 24$ FOR 72 HOURS that is why i ask if the validation on the CAT validates also in the public transportation in Vienna OR should i validate it again on the public transport ?

You would validate the 72hour ticket the first time you use the Vienna transport system which may not necessarily be the same day you use the CAT.

A return CAT ticket cots €17 . A 72 hour Vienna public transport card bought seperately costs €14.50.

A combined return CAT ticket + 72 hour card bought online costs € 32, so I don't see any saving here.

Why not buy each ticket seperately as you need it?

Jaybee is right about the €32 price which equates to $43 though a 72 hour card is actually €15.40 making a 40 cent saving! I think you got the conversion the wrong way round as $32 = €24! The S7 return including a 72 hour card costs €19.60 = $26.

Norman, thanks for pointing out the error.

I was relying on the information on the Vienna tourist information site, which appears to be a little out of date.

wien.info/en/…public-transport

The correct prices are of course those published by Wiener Linien.
