Climate Ticket

Advice

Anyone who buys an Austria-wide KlimaTicket from July 1 to December 31, 2022, can use all participating means of transportation for 13 months instead of 12 without paying more ("KlimaMonat"). If the "KlimaTicket Ö" is extended, the promotion will be valid until June 30, 2023.

General information

The "KlimaTicket Ö" (Austria Climate Ticket) is accepted on all public transport throughout Austria for one year. It is valid for standard public transport services (state and privately-run rail services, inner-city transport services and routes run by transport associations), either within a given region, across multiple regions, or across Austria, depending on the individual ticket. Tourist offers such as Schneebergbahn are excluded.

They can be purchased at → KlimaTicket as well as at points of sale for all participating transport associations and companies. The standard price of a "Klimaticket Ö" is 1,095 Euro. Concessions are offered for people up to and including 25 years of age and those over the age of 64, well as for people with mobility difficulties. Special offers also apply to families.

From April 1, 2022, all basic military and civilian servants can travel free of charge throughout Austria with the KlimaTicket.

Advice

Employers have the option to buy "Klimatickets" for their employees tax-free, or to reimburse their employees for the full purchase price, again tax-free. Further information on tax-free weekly, monthly and annual season tickets for employees can be found on USP.gv.at

In addition to the "KlimaTicket Ö", which is valid for the whole of Austria, Austria's individual provinces can also issue their own "Klimatickets", valid in one or more named provinces. Annual season tickets valid in specific provinces are already available in Vorarlberg, Tyrol, Salzburg and Vienna.
