Insider info about getting around the city

image imageOK, so now I’m going jto focus on transportation in Vienna. It’s so easy to get around the city using public transportation. There are five (seriously FIVE) very convenient ways to get around. You can use the bus, street tram, underground train, OBB fast train or taxi. There is one main public transportation company in Vienna called the “Wiener Linien”. It’s super easy to find your way, so long as you know where you’re going 😉. You buy a ticket and you’re on your way to literally anywhere you need to be. I have a friend who has been living in Vienna for years and she has never felt the need go buy a car. Seriously, the public transportation is that good. Here’s how it works… you can buy a ticket for any amount of time….. for example 1 week, 2 months or a year and the price is based on the length of time you will be traveling. Since I moved to vienna permanently, I bought a ticket good for one year. It’s reasonably priced. Since I’m younger, and a student I am able to buy the ticket for only €60. Now once you’ve purchased the ticket you are free to use any means of transportation, you can catch the bus, tram underground train… doesn’t matter. Very cool system that gives you the ability to get around with ease!
