How to Get Here

Wearing FFP2 masks is required in public transports, including the ISTA shuttle bus.

ISTA Shuttle Bus Nr. 142

ISTA provides a shuttle bus for anybody traveling from Vienna-Heiligenstadt to the campus (and return) to expand the public bus service. The ISTA Shuttle Bus connects Vienna’s underground network (from U4 Heiligenstadt) to ISTA with just one stop at Stadtplatz in Klosterneuburg. This reduces travel time compared to the public bus. The ISTA Shuttle Bus can be used by ISTA employees and by any other person, too.
