Wiener Linien carried around 40 percent fewer passengers in Corona Year 2020 than in the previous year. In total, around 574 million passengers traveled by subway, streetcar or bus in the previous year.

Wiener Linien lost a total of around 110 million euros in ticket revenue in the previous year. In any case, the city now has to cover 75 million euros of the necessary additional demand via an operating subsidy. Among other things, tourists, who buy the majority of individual tickets, have been missing. Savings were also made, for example by eliminating the night subway. But they were comparatively small.

The passenger slump was particularly severe during the first lockdown at the beginning of last year. Up to 80 percent fewer passengers were registered at that time. The lowest point was reached in mid-April.

The mobility mix in Vienna has also changed. The share of public transport riders in the traffic volume has decreased significantly, from 38 to 27 percent. However, Hanke pointed out, this was offset by an increasing share among pedestrians and, above all, cyclists. Car use remained stable at 27 percent, so the big shift to the car seems to have failed to materialize.
