From September 3, 2010 the Vienna subway network will run non-stop on weekends and during the nights before public holidays.
From September 3, 2010 all five of Vienna’s subway lines will stay open through the night every Friday and Saturday. The underground trains will also run all night before public holidays – in 2010 public holidays not falling on weekends are the Austrian National Holiday (October 26), All Saints’ Day (November 1), and the Feast of the Immaculate Conception (December 8). The night service operates every 15 minutes, and can be used with a standard price Wiener Linien ticket. The current night bus schedule will be adapted to the new Wiener Linien operating times.
The constantly growing Wiener Linien public transportation network is the ideal way to reach all Vienna’s sites and explore the city. In 2009 Vienna’s public transportation network carried almost 812 million passengers. Last year 35 percent of all journeys taken in the city were by underground, bus or tram. Private cars were the second most popular mode of transportation, accounting for 32 percent of the total.
