Two hundred sixty-two thousand users of the Climate Ticket can currently use all public transport throughout Austria.
Now, they are getting a wish they expressed in a survey fulfilled: From November 27, the ticket will also be available digitally. “With the digital climate ticket, public transport is even more convenient and comfortable to experience,” said Climate Protection Minister Leonore Gewessler (Greens) on Thursday.
Install the app from ÖBB, Westbahn or Wiener Linien
To obtain this, install the ÖBB, Westbahn or Wiener Linien app on your smartphone and call the climate ticket there. Then, enter data such as card number and date of birth, and the climate ticket will appear in the app and can be shown instead of the conventional card for every journey. Further compatible apps from other Austrian transport associations will be added continuously.
Future climate tickets will be free for all 18-year-olds.
It has been ensured that the ticket can be checked on all means of public transport and that the requirements for the necessary security against misuse are also met. And it is accepted by every one of the more than 100 transport operators in Austria. Gewessler wants to use the digital option to inspire even more people to switch to climate-friendly mobility and thus come closer to achieving the climate targets.
