Vienna has an excellent public transportation network with 5 metro lines, several tram and bus lines, rapid trains, etc. The center of the city has very limited parking space, and the public garages are rather expensive. Thus, making use of the public transport system can save you a lot of time and money. Several types of tickets and passes are available, starting from the single tickets to the annual passes.
