IST Shuttle Bus Nr. 142

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 Vienna’s underground network (from U4 Heiligenstadt) to IST Austria with just one stop at Stadtplatz in Klosterneuburg. This reduces travel time compared to the public bus. The IST Austria Shuttle Bus can be used by IST Austria employees and by any other person, too.
