Tickets for Graz
Whether you will need a ticket to use the public transport network in Graz depends on which mode of transport you have used to travel to Graz:
- If you arrive by train from any point of departure in Austria, you will typically hold an Austrian Railways (ÖBB) train ticket in your hands. In this case you will need a ticket from the main train station for your journeys in Graz (zone 101). It is best if you buy an hourly ticket or a 24-hour ticket directly in the public transport vehicle or at the stop.
Tip: Austrian Railways (ÖBB) also offers train tickets plus City Ticket for Graz from any point of departure in Austria – this ticket entitles you to use the urban public transport on the day of arrival.
- If you arrive in Graz by regional bus (or by train from a point of departure in Styria) you are automatically in possession of a network ticket that is also valid in Graz. Therefore, you do not need to buy another ticket.
- In Graz you can buy a ticket for zone 101 in any public transport vehicle. This zone reaches far beyond the city limits, for instance all the way to the airport. This ticket is valid in all public means of transport (incl. Schlossberg funicular) in Graz.
- If you are planning to stay in Graz for an extended period of time, you may want to consider buying the economical Graz 3-day pass, which is available from all staffed ticket counters, ticket vending machines and the tram stop at Graz main station as well as in the trams themselves. A weekly pass is also an option well worth considering. These tickets are also available with the Austrian Railways (ÖBB) ticket app.
- You do not have to pay anything for your baggage.
