One of the many facts is that the company served around 64.5 million passengers in 2021 despite the Corona and that about 1,300 trains successfully operate daily on Vienna's entire S-Bahn network. The company last year invested 776 million euros in the main Vienna line between Meidling and Floridsdorf.

The Vienna S-Bahn celebrated its 60th birthday on January 17, 2022. Since 1962, the Viennese landmark with its blue and white logo got linked to the city. Over the last 60 years, many billions of passengers have used the S-Bahn. There were still around 65 million passengers in 2021 despite the Corona, compared to 100 million passengers before the pandemic.

In addition, the ÖBB has launched an offensive station: for example, the train stations in Wien Mitte and Praterstern have already got transformed into multifunctional barrier-free mobility hubs. The highlight was undoubtedly the opening of Vienna's new Central Station in 2015 - and the associated transformation of Vienna's former S-Bahn station Südtiroler Platz into today's Belvedere Quarter. The modernization of the Vienna Matzleinsdorfer Platz train station is currently in full swing.

The Wiener Schnellbahn is an actual model of success: between 2010 and 2019, the number of passengers on the Wiener Schnellbahn increased by a third. Growth was significantly higher in some areas in the city center, such as the Wien-Mitte / Rennweg area. ÖBB expects this trend to increase considerably after the end of the pandemic - not least thanks to the successful launch of the climate ticket. The close connection with the metro and tram network proves to be the secret of its success.
