As Austria's leading rail company, ÖBB gets seen as one of the frontrunners by providing barrier-free transportation. Therefore, they allow all travelers to experience equal services. ÖBB is actively putting in its efforts to make each traveler's experience memorable and pleasant.

On the International Day of People with Disabilities, which got set for 3 December, Vienna Central station will get illuminated with purple lights. Thanks to ÖBB, the purple lights will raise awareness and honor ÖBB's contributions.

When drafting and applying projects for better accessibility, ÖBB relies on the expertise of the people concerned, for example in the development of new products or the design of new vehicles. A current initiative deals with the question: "How can ÖBB better notify people with reduced mobility and people with disabilities?" People interested in making their voices heard, with and without disabilities, can fill the survey on ÖBB's website.

In addition to the advantages of accessibility for passengers, ÖBB takes its responsibility as one of the top employers in the country very seriously. The ÖBB wants to promote awareness and acceptance for a fair, equal, and judgment-free working and living environment. To achieve this, ÖBB creates fitting framework conditions for the individual needs of people with disabilities, starting with the recruiting processes.

In 2020, the ÖBB launched the Charter of Inclusion, which aims to improve equal opportunities at work as one of the most crucial social and economic policy concerns. With this charter, ÖBB has committed to putting all employees at the focus of all activities to equal status.

"Austria's most important train station in purple: For me, a special sign that puts the day-to-day commitment of colleagues at ÖBB to accessibility in a unique, special light. It is important to know that everyone continues this effort even when the spotlights have gone out - because valuing and living diversity and inclusion are organic goals for ÖBB, even when no one is looking," emphasizes ÖBB Diversity Officer Traude Kogoj.
