When on holiday in Styria, even your car gets to take some time off. The public transport network leaves nothing to be desired. And in places where there are no buses or trains, innovative mobility solutions were established. The GUSTmobil, for example, brings holiday guests to the city centre of Graz all year round. The WEINmobil is the safe solution for wine lovers along the Southern Styrian Wine Road. And with the ski and hiking buses of the Schladming-Dachstein Region, you can travel comfortably from your accommodation to the ski resort or to the starting point of your hike.
Graz Linien as well as the Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB), the Steiermärkische Landesbahnen (STLB) and the Graz-Köflach Railway (GKB) ensure mobility in Graz as well as across the holiday regions of Styria.
Good to know: Thanks to Rail & Drive by ÖBB, you can flexibly switch between travelling by train and by car.
All connections at a glance: BusBahnBim is the timetable information service for all public transport in Styria and throughout Austria. Simply enter your town or address and get information on stops and important POIs.
From hourly tickets for day trips to special leisure tickets for weekend trips – in Styria, there is a suitable ticket for every holiday guest.
Did you know that between Jakominiplatz and Hauptplatz plus one stop in both directions, visitors travel for free on the Old Town Tram? Just look for the "Altstadt Bim" sticker and off you go on your journey through the UNESCO World Heritage City.
Wherever there are no buses or trams, you'll find the GUSTmobil Graz and VOmobil Lipizzanerheimat. The mobility solution is an optimal addition to the existing public transport connections, and it makes the outskirts and western part of Graz and the region around Graz easily accessible.
Are you planning to drive along the Wine Road with your own car? Maybe not the greatest idea ... That's where the WEINmobil comes in handy – the taxi service takes visitors quickly and easily to their desired location: to excursion destinations, wineries, wine taverns, restaurants or inns, to accommodation in the nearest village or to public transport connection stops.
In places where there are no buses or trains, the SAM shared taxi comes and closes the mobility gap. The SAM stops at around 3,000 points in over 60 municipalities in East Styria. It takes passengers to their desired destination at a very affordable price. SAMs can be booked from Monday to Sunday, from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm – in certain regions, even from 5:00 am to midnight.
The ski and hiking buses are probably the most pleasant way to start and also end a day of skiing or hiking. In the morning, they take sports enthusiasts and their equipment to the desired starting point. And after an active day on skis, a snowboard or on the hiking trails, you can simply hop back on the bus and relax on the way back to your accommodation.
The parking spaces at the most beautiful places in the green heart of Austria are usually very popular and thus occupied early. To be on the safe side when travelling, it is better to use regional alternatives instead of your car:
Travelling by public transport not only saves you the hassle of looking for a parking space. In Styria, it also saves you money. As a holder of the Steiermark-Card and other regional guest cards, you'll get discounts at excursion destinations and for public transport.
By using an electric car, you contribute to the environmentally conscious future of mobility. The green heart of Austria supports this decision and offers publicly accessible charging stations at numerous locations.
An active holiday in the alpine north or an enjoyable trip through the sun-kissed south: In the green heart of Austria, there is a suitable holiday offer for every taste and preference.
