Vienna’s public transport

7 December 2007  •  Author(s): Robert Huka, Treasurer, Fahrgast

Fahrgast was founded in 1985 to work for public transport passengers. Their first great action was the fight for the tramway line 8, which runs parallel to the – as then un-constructed – underground line U6. In 1995 at their tenth anniversary, Fahrgast held a symposium, Renaissance of Tramway. Fahrgast is a participant in the Viennese commission for street building and works for the optimal conception of stations for tramway and bus lines. Fahrgast developed several concepts for tramway line expansions as an alternative to extension plans for the underground network. Furthermore, the Austrian passenger federation works in a commission of the Österreichische Bundesbahnen to help optimise timetables for bus and train connections.
