About WESTbahn

Since our operational start in December 2011 WESTbahn has become an integral part of Austrian railway transport between Vienna and Salzburg. The company was founded in 2008 as the first operative subsidiary of Rail Holding AG within the framework of railway liberalization in the European Union. In the past few years, we have already achieved one goal: to offer more quality on the rail for all railway passengers through more competition.

Ongoing customer feedback confirms that WESTbahn has a reputation for a continual pursuit of high quality railway travel. Our passengers particularly appreciate our friendly stewards who care for our passengers during their journey and are the point of contact for any queries or concerns. Passengers like to choose our well-equipped WESTbahn trains for a relaxed and safe journey with exceptionally high punctuality.

We are committed to our high quality standards every day and on every journey. From December 2017, we will more than double our fleet capacity. This will enable us to provide a service between Vienna and Salzburg every half an hour.
