11 November 2013  •  Author(s): Barbara Muhr, Managing Director, Holding Graz Linien

Graz Linien is the biggest public mobility provider in southern Austria, responsible for two thirds of total public transport association (Verkehrsverbund) services in Styria. With more than 900 employees and a fleet of 86 trams and 148 buses, Graz Linien runs a total of eight tram lines, 28 bus and eight night bus lines on a network of 415km. This amounts to an equivalent of 280,000 passengers a day travelling with Graz Linien. In the 2012 business year, more than 102 million passengers used Graz Linien – around 1% more than in 2011. The main focus is on good service quality guaranteed by regular staff training and strict recruiting standards, but also thanks to perfect teamwork with workshop staff.
