Salzburg’s area-wide network of bus lines caters to your every need. The electric trolleys and regular buses carry locals and guests alike to their destination, always stress-free and eco-friendly.
Salzburg boasts an eco-friendly public transportation system that includes electrically powered trolleys as well as buses. Take full advantage of public transport and do your part to protect the climate. Our trolley buses run every 10 minutes during the day, while most regular buses come every 15 minutes. A special timetable is in effect during the summer holidays between July and August. Current bus schedules can be found online at www.obus.at.
Single tickets for Salzburg public transportation as well as 24-hour tickets for the central zone are cheaper if you buy them in advance at one of the numerous kiosks (“Trafiken”) throughout Salzburg. The 24-hour ticket is especially affordable, providing you with a runaround ticket for the entire city. If you plan on staying longer than 4 days in the city, purchasing a weekly pass is definitely worthwhile. Please bear in mind that, if you purchase a ticket in advance, you must stamp that ticket the first time you board whatever vehicle you are using.
Thanks to the Salzburg transportation app for iPhone, android and Windows, you will always be able to find the best path to your destination, wherever in Austria that happens to be. The Salzburg transportation app clearly presents you with all possible connections from starting point to destination. Further information about this app can be found on the website of the Salzburg public transit authority.
