Vienna Transit


Vienna has 5 U-Bahn Lines. Parts date to 1898 when a Stadtbahn opened using steam locomotives. It was converted to electric traction in the 1926. The modern metro opened in 1976. Most of the original Stadtbahn was converted to metro via U4 & U6. However U6 uses light rail type vehicles as it was never converted to third rail.
