Not only used by Hollywood, Vienna's underground is a vital part of the city's infrastructure and one of Europe's most modern. First opened in the late 1970s, Vienna's underground rail system now consists of five (soon to be six) lines and forms the core of the city's public transport system. An annual ticket costing €365 was purchased by more than 800,000 people in 2019.



"The car has become
an article of dress without
which we feel uncertain,
unclad and incomplete
in the urban compound."
