Preview timetable 2020 (valid from December 15, 2019)
As you might have read in the media, there will be changes for WESTbahn. We sell our existing fleet to Deutsche Bahn in two batches and will order a new fleet at the same time. For this reason WESTbahn will temporarily return to an hourly service between Wien Westbahnhof and Salzburg starting in December 2019. After the delivery of our new fleet we will resume the current 30 minute´s pattern.
What does that mean for you as a traveller?
1. Until and including December 14, 2019 our timetable offer will remain the same as today.
2. Starting on December 15, 2019 and presumably until December 11, 2021, WESTbahn will offer an hourly service from Wien Westbahnhof via Wien Hütteldorf, St. Pölten, Amstetten, Linz, Wels, Attnang-Puchheim and Vöcklabruck to Salzburg. During peak hours this hourly service will be intensified to a half-hourly service through additional departures.
3. After the delivery of our new fleet (in the course of 2021) we will renew our consistent 30 minute´s offer between Vienna and Salzburg not later than December 12, 2021. We will communicate all relevant details in due time.
Please find the timetable valid from December 15, 2019 subsequently.
