How to Get Here

IST Shuttle Bus

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