  • This is how to order in the online ticket shop

    Step 1: Register in the shop

    Step 2: Check eligibility

    In order for you to be able to buy the semester pass in the online shop, you first need to register in the shop. Before you are able to buy the ticket, it is first checked to see whether you meet the eligibility criteria: to this end, your details (enrolment number, name, first name, date of birth, place of birth) are compared with the Federal Electronic Data Processing Centre (Bundesrechenzentrum) and/or your study institution.

    The check is only performed once you have given your express permission to compare online details via a secure SSL connection. No details are transmitted here to Wiener Linien. Only the accuracy or inaccuracy of the details being queried is confirmed. Only once the details have been confirmed can the online purchase be carried out.

    Important:

    • This check only leads to a positive result (i.e.: you can only order the ticket online) if your details entered in Wiener Linien’s online ticket shop fully match the details from your study institution.
    • When you are enrolling for the first time, the process of enrolment must be performed before you buy your semester pass (see details check).
    • If you are not yet enrolled to continue with your studies, the details provided for the previous semester are also taken into account when querying the details.

    Step 3: Payment

    If your details have been confirmed, you can pay for the ticket via online banking or credit card and print it out. We accept Visa/card complete, MasterCard/PayLife, American Express and Diners Club/AirPlus. If you lose your ticket, you can print it out again free of charge.
