Public transport

Hi

We have booked train tickets from Vienna to Salzburg and back but need to take the underground to get to the train station. Do we need to purchase addition tickets for the underground?

Our son is 13yrs old, does he travel free on Sunday only? we will be in Vienna from 5 to 9 Sept

Thanks

Yes, you need to buy tickets for the subway! It is correct that children below the age of 15 travel free on Sundays!

Thank you for your prompt reply.

Is a 24hr ticket good for transfer from the airport to city city centre?

Only the portion from the city boundary. You need an extra one zone ticket costing €2.20 to get from the airport to the city boundary.

Thank you for your reply.

One final question, we are thinking of buy 72hr Vienna cards since the boy would travel for free...with regards to transport does it work as a regular 72hr ticket?

The ticket is valid on all means of public transport (bus, train, tram, subway) within the city boundaries for 72 hours exactly from the moment you validate the ticket in the little blue box. You should therefore not validate until you are just about to go to the platform for your first train or subway or just boarding your first bus or tram.

You can see a picture of a validation machine here:
