Bus & Train

Osttirol is excellently served by public transport . From Lienz, the Drautalbahn goes west towards South Tyrol and east towards Carinthia, which means that many places in Osttirol can be reached directly by train. Lienz is also the hub for numerous buses that take you to all regions of Osttirol.


Use the public transportation also for your undertakings. This allows you to start at one place and return from another for hikes, bike tours, winter hikes or ski tours.

Dial-a-ride taxi service – public transport on demand

The dial-a-ride taxi service uses the regular stops of the scheduled bus services or dial-a-ride collection points, but only on demand. Once ordered by phone, the dial-a-ride taxi service picks you up at the requested collection point (bus stop) at the time scheduled on the timetable and takes you to your destination, another collection point.

Taxis must be booked at least 60 minutes before your required pick-up time as listed on the timetable. Requests for early departure times must be made by 8pm the night before.
