Buses & trains

It is very easy to get around Osttirol by public transport. From Lienz, the Drau Valley Railway runs west to South Tyrol and east to Carinthia, making a number of places in Osttirol directly accessible by train. Lienz is also a major interchange for a number of bus routes that will take you to every region of Osttirol.

Using public transport for your activities, such as hiking, cycle tours, winter walks or cross-country skiing, enables you to start in one place and return from another.

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.

You’ll need to tell the driver your name, departure time, departure stop (collection point), destination and the number of passengers – and the same again for the return journey (if required).
