Where can I buy the Austria-wide or a regional climate ticket?


Free "KlimaTicket Ö18": From July 1, 2024, young adults will be entitled to a one-off free "KlimaTicket Ö" on the occasion of their 18th birthday. Anyone who has celebrated or will celebrate their 18th birthday from 1 January 2024 and is resident in Austria is eligible. They have three years from their birthday to redeem their ticket.

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 → 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 65, well as for people with mobility difficulties. Special offers also apply to families.  The digital KlimaTicket Ö can be displayed in the apps of ÖBB, WESTbahn and Wiener Linien.

When purchasing online, the earliest possible start of validity of the "KlimaTicket Ö" is 15 days after purchase. The ticket purchased at a service point can already be valid from the date of purchase. In both cases, however, the "KlimaTicket Ö" can be purchased a maximum of one month before the desired start of validity.

All basic military and civilian servants can travel free of charge throughout Austria with the "Klimaticket".


Employers have the option to buy "Klimatickets" for their employees tax-free as a preferential public transport ticket (tax-free weekly, motnly and annual tickets)German text or to reimburse their employees for the full purchase price, again tax-free. A requirement for the KlimaTicket is that the place of residence or work is in Austria.

Regional "Klimatickets"

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.
