Thousands of Ukrainians arrive daily at Vienna Central Station, the largest station in Austria, either to stay there or to travel to other European countries. They are all warmly greeted with soup, hot tea, and coffee.

Crowds of people, measured in thousands and ranging in age from retirees to children and newborns, fill Vienna's train station in search of shelter from the war that Russia waged on Ukraine on February 24th. The ÖBB estimates that the daily number of refugees arriving by train in Austria ranges from 3,000 to 4,000. All forms of railway and public transport are free for Ukrainians trying to escape the war.

The Caritas charity is currently working with the ÖBB at Vienna Central Station. ÖBB staff and volunteers have prepared 24-hour heated waiting areas, a wide selection of hot food, drinks, snacks, and toiletries. The Caritas Center, located next to the station on the Erste Bank Campus, offers assistance to women with children by providing them with emergency supplies. Other volunteers are responsible for providing refugees with respirators. Drugstore DM, located near the central station, offers visitors to buy the so-called Hilfspaket (help package), which includes hygiene products, baby food, and diapers.

Moreover, Austria has pledged to send more passenger cars to the Polish-Ukrainian border to quickly transport people from war zones to safe places. These cars will also carry items donated to help Ukrainians who were forced to leave their homeland due to the war.
