S-Bahn Wien

UPGRADE of the Vienna S-Bahn

For more than 60 years, the so-called "S-Bahn Vienna core line" between Vienna Meidling and Vienna Floridsdorf has been an important local transport route through Vienna for locals as well as commuters. It forms the backbone of public rail transport beyond the city limits.
In order to ensure that local and regional public transport between Vienna and Lower Austria remains punctual and reliable in the long term, the "S-Bahn Vienna Upgrade" programme was launched to make the lines and their facilities fit for the future by the end of 2027.

In addition to the modernisation and digitalisation of the Vienna core line, many improvements are also being implemented along the north-western line, the northern line and the southern line in order to bring more commuters quickly and comfortably to the federal capital.

UPGRADE for increased reliability

We are sustainably modernising the entire S-Bahn for long-term punctuality and reliability.

Campaign theme for smart "schlau"

UPGRADE for rapid local traffic

The use of the digital train control system "ETCS" allows us to have tighter intervals and thus leads to shorter waiting times.

UPGRADE for stress-free commuting

We are extending platforms for modern and longer trains. This will create more space and greater comfort for all rail customers.
