Education and Campaigns

The railway is one of the safest means of transport in Austria. Each day an average of 4,300 passenger trains safely transport more than 650,000 passengers to their destination. But even the safest form of transport requires attention. And rules must be followed. ÖBB-Infrastruktur creates awareness for railway safety and safe behaviour on many levels.
