Train commuter Wolfgang Eisler from the Waldviertel no longer sees the Franz-Josefs-Bahn and the ÖBB. Not only that: he had to change to the car – but there was no more parking space in the park-and-ride facility in Vienna-Spittelau.

So he had to drive his car to Vienna, where there was no room left in the park-and-ride facility. “That day I was able to smear the climate ticket more in d’Hoa. What do commuters like who do not have the option to transfer to a car?” Eisler wonders. Apologies from the ÖBB: operational reasons would be Thursday in the past two weeks there have been individual train cancellations due to a catenary failure on the Czech side and accidents.
