As the largest bus company in Austria, we are constantly working on new technologies and ideas to help shape the future of bus transport in Austria.
Particularly in rural areas, where the Postbus is the only means of public transport in many municipalities and forms the backbone of mobility, we wish to use micro public transport (or microtransit) to give critical impetus for the future of mobility. By using micro public transport, we can generate an offering both for excursion traffic and for the rural population.
Postbus also takes its responsibility in achieving EU climate objectives seriously. In the long term, our goal is to convert our bus services to alternative drive technologies. This is just one of the reasons why Postbus is continuously working on new innovations, such as environmentally friendly drive technologies for buses. As a result, the first battery-powered electric buses were able to go into regular operation, following successful pilot projects, in 2018. And in October 2018, the first hydrogen powered bus in Austria was put into pilot test operation on Vienna Airport Lines services.
