Discounts and free travel
Children and youths
Young passengers who do not go to school yet travel free of charge. Free travel with Wiener Linien also applies until the end of the academic year in which the child turns six. Children may travel free of charge on ÖBB suburban trains until the age of six.
During the school holidays in Vienna, on Sundays and public holidays, as well as on 2 and 15 November, children and youths may travel free of charge on Wiener Linien’s network, until the age of 15. However, free travel does not apply on so-called school-free days that are approved by the respective school.
In the case of older pupils (excluding vocational pupils) who attend a state school in Austria or a private school with public status, this free travel rule applies until they turn 24. The school ID card is recognised as proof.
Persons aged 63 or over may buy the single tickets for one or two journeys at a reduced rate for senior citizens. Similarly, senior citizens may also purchase the annual pass at a reduced rate. Otherwise, senior citizens pay the normal ticket price.
