Austria’s public transport is fast, efficient and comprehensive. ÖBB (w www.oebb.at) runs a punctual train network, which includes most towns of any size. All stations in cities and larger towns have left-luggage lockers. An Austria one-country pass with Eurail starts at €77 (3 days validity in 1 month; under-25s), though it’s worth checking individual train prices, which can work out cheaper.
Buses (w www.postbus.at) serve remoter villages and Alpine valleys; fares are around €10 per 100km. Daily and weekly regional travelcards (Netzkarte), covering both trains and buses, are available in many regions.
Austria is bike-friendly, with cycle lanes in all major towns. Many train stations rent bikes for around €15 per day (€10 with a valid train ticket).
