Description:

The following measures have been taken to promote municipal, local and regional public transport: - Limit individual traffic, especially in downtown areas — limit entry to city centres by such measures as pedestrian zones. - Manage parking space. - Promote the creation and enlargement of municipal, local and regional public transportation networks. In 1996, the Technical University of Vienna published the study Creation and Financing of Public Transportation Networks. Its main conclusions were the need for a network system covering Austria as a whole; the creation of a planning authority; changes in the system of concessions. Improvements to the transport sector have been ongoing and the latest Transport for Austria plan was written in 2012 and sets out a vision to 2025.
