Timetables of major government operated (or commissioned) national-level public transport services (specifically bus and train). The focus here is on national level services (not those which operate only at a municipal or city level and which are not controlled or regulated by the national government). A 'yes' in any question will refer to both types of transport. However, if there is no national level service operated or regulated by the government for a given type of transport (for instance busses), then this type is ignored in this data category. Data submitted in this category should meet the following minimum criteria:

  • Time of operating
  • Time of leaving first station and arriving to the last station
  • Updated at least once a year

Data Location



The state-owned Austrian Railways (ÖBB) makes the schedules of its trains available in PDF files but retains the full copyright. The links to the PDF files can be found on a single page, the data is updated twice a year as schedules change.

There are open datasets for schedules by the City of Vienna (https://www.data.gv.at/katalog/dataset/add66f20-d033-4eee-b9a0-47019828e698) and the City of Linz (https://www.data.gv.at/katalog/dataset/9faa1734-607f-4bfd-b8c9-c5692bf37d55) as well as by the region Steiermark available (data with CC-BY license) - but these are regional datasets not national ones.

Reviewer comments

Too bad and flabbergasting that Austria doesn't have machine readable timetables. Review is correct
