Most Austrians rely on cars daily. This is shown by an Integral survey commissioned by “AutoScout24.at”. According to the study, 58 percent of the 501 respondents stated that they need the vehicle, for example, to get to work or education. The figure remained largely stable compared with the previous year. Commuters, in particular, need their cars urgently.
While seven out of ten people in Lower Austria, Burgenland, Upper Austria and Salzburg rely on a car for their daily commute, the comparable figure among Viennese is just over a quarter (27 percent). The figure is six out of ten in Styria and Carinthia, while in Tyrol and Vorarlberg, it is slightly lower than the Austrian average at 56 percent.

According to the survey, men need their cars more (61 percent) than women (55 percent). Likewise, there is a difference in the age groups. While 18- to 29-year-olds need their cars less frequently than average (47 percent depend on them), two-thirds of the 30- to 49-year-olds say they do. From the age of 50, dependence decreases somewhat (57 percent).
According to the survey, 55 percent of Austrians are satisfied with the public transport connections at their primary residence. This value stagnated in comparison to 2022. Satisfaction with public transport connections is very high in Vienna, where the fewest people also rely on cars. Eight out of ten people in the federal capital say they are very well or well connected. In the far west, in Tyrol and Vorarlberg, the figure of 73 percent is also well above the Austrian average. On the other hand, the people of Lower Austria and Burgenland are only 39 percent satisfied.

Commuters and frequent travellers are less happy with public transport connections. Seven out of ten people who drive less than 5,000 kilometres per year are satisfied with public transport connections. Four out of ten are satisfied among those who drive more than 20,000 kilometres. Among commuters, just 45 percent consider their primary residence well-connected.
