Dear passengers,

due to the ongoing COVID 19 crisis the Ministry of Climate Protection has again ordered an emergency PSO service from WESTbahn and ÖBB for the Vienna - Salzburg route. 

Thus the below-mentioned schedule is valid until February 7, 2021. 

Please note the following details:

  • In the mutual schedule with ÖBB, WESTbahn will provide 9 trains per day and direction between Vienna and Salzburg. These trains will depart from Wien Westbahnhof at minutes 36 and 42, respectively. They will stop in Wien Meidling, Tullnerfeld, St. Pölten, Amstetten, St. Valentin, Linz, Wels, Attnang-Puchheim, Vöcklabruck and Neumarkt-Köstendorf. Wien Hütteldorf will be omitted as a stop. Travel time is prolonged due to the change in the routing. 
  • In addition to this, there will be up to 3 trains per day (except Saturday) and direction in the regular "WESTbahn scheme" from Wien Westbahnhof via Wien Hütteldorf to Salzburg Hauptbahnhof. These will not stop in the additional stations.
  • Because of the different routings a rotation of the order of WESTbahn coaches can happen. 

In all WESTbahn trains you will be allowed to use any valid ticket from VOR, OÖVV and SVV until February 7, 2021. The mutual acceptance of tickets from WESTbahn and ÖBB will also be established again. 

This means that you will be allowed to use your WESTbahn ticket also in the following ÖBB trains: In long distance trains (Railjet, Raijet Xpress, ICE, D as well as IC [except IC 94 and IC 95]) between Vienna and Salzburg, in CJX trains between Wien Westbahnhof and Amstetten as well as in S80 between Wien Hütteldorf and Wien Meidling. 

In the course of the emergency PSO no promotional fares will be available from both companies. 

Please wear your FFP2 mask on board at all times. 

See you soon! 
Yours, WESTbahn
