Must read

At 695 euros, the climate ticket in Upper Austria for the core zones of Linz, Wels and Steyr was the most expensive in Austria to date. The Greens recently called for a price reduction again. The Upper Austrian Transport Association (OÖVV) had promised cheaper fares, saying they were “on the home straight”. This has now been achieved: as of March 1st, the climate ticket will be cheaper in all categories with core zones.

The “KlimaTicket OÖ Gesamt” will cost 550 euros in future (instead of the previous 695 euros). The price for the KlimaTicket OÖ without the core zones Linz, Steyr and Wels remains at 365 euros.

That changes concretely

The prices for the “KlimaTickets Oberösterreich” have so far been between 365 euros per year, depending on the category (only regional public transport services excluding the Linz, Wels and Steyr city transport services) and 695 euros (all of Upper Austria). As of March 1st, existing and new customers can look forward to a significant price reduction. Above all, those variants that include at least one of the core zone services in Linz, Steyr or Wels will be significantly cheaper. A climate ticket with the Linz core zone will only cost 495 euros in future (instead of the previous 621 euros), those with the Wels or Steyr core zone will then cost 480 euros (instead of the previous 604 euros). The “KlimaTicket OÖ Gesamt” with all city transport (Linz, Steyr and Wels) is available from March 1st for 550 euros (instead of the previous 695 euros). The OÖVV offers discounted KlimaTickets OÖ for certain passenger groups. The price for these annual network tickets, which are already cheaper, will also be reduced from March.

Existing customers with climate tickets including one or all core zones will be automatically switched to the new tariffs. For all those who chose partial payment when ordering, the monthly partial payment amounts will be reduced accordingly. If you paid the total amount when ordering, you will receive a pro rata refund of the costs. Also new from March: Parents who have a “KlimaTicket OÖ Gesamt” can take their children up to the age of 15 with them free of charge.

The funding for the recent significant reduction in the prices for annual network tickets is provided by funds made available by the federal government. In addition to reducing prices, part of these additional funds will also be used to expand public transport in Upper Austria. Since it was introduced on October 26, 2021, more than 27,500 people have bought one of the need-based categories of the Upper Austrian Climate Ticket.
