Details:

The Public Transport Authority Eastern Region (Verkehrsverbund Ost-Region VOR) is the largest transport association in Austria. With more than 40 rail and bus transport partners, it has provided comprehensive mobility services for passengers in Vienna, Lower Austria and Burgenland (in short: Eastern Region) since 1984. The modern mobility agency VOR is responsible for the crossborder planning, financing and coordination of all public transport services in that region.

At the interface between passengers, transport companies, regional authorities and policy makers, VOR is working to improve and develop mobility services in the Eastern Region. Comprehensive and intermodal mobility, with a focus on modern passenger information systems, but also efficient and environmentally sound public transport planning and management are the central concerns of VOR.

VOR coordinates and commissions local and regional public transport in the Eastern Region. In the rail sector, VOR is responsible for financing services that exceed the basic offer as defined by the federal government. This amounts to approximately 10% of train travel kilometers in Vienna, Lower Austria and Burgenland. The association’s revenues (e.g. ticket revenues garnered by transport companies) are collected by VOR and distributed among the members of the association.
