Public transport is convenient and safe. Trams, buses and underground trains
generally run until about midnight: first and last trains are listed
at each stop. There are also night buses on some routes which can be
used with the same kind of tickets and are also found by the route
finder mentioned above.
Inside each bus, underground or tram carriage there is a list of all
the stops on that line. All stops are signposted (at bus and tram
stops at the top of the stop sign). Free subway maps are available at
information offices. Ticket vending machines take € 10 bills
but it is advisable to have some small change with you. 'Zone 1'
covers all of Vienna; the other zones apply to lines to nearby towns,
or to Vienna Airport. In particular, if you buy a single ticket (=
Einzelfahrkarte) at a vending machine you should press yellow button
1 under the 'Einzelfahrkarte' table for adults.

ticket office on the platform from which the train leaves and
