The measures of the federal government to contain coronavirus are also having effects on the operations of the largest municipal service company in Styria – Holding Graz. In various areas, Holding Graz is adapting its comprehensive offers and services on the basis of the regulations issued.

Graz Linien:


The safety and well-being of our passengers and employees is paramount to us.

The following measures currently apply at our company



  • From 25 January onwards, it is mandatory to wear an FFP2 mask on all public transport. This also applies at stops and train and tram platforms. All questions and answers on this topic can be found here!
  • Where possible, a distance of two metres to other passengers is to be observed.
  • The rondel at Jakominiplatz is closed for customer information.

The Federal Ministry for Climate Action, together with the social partners, has drawn up a Passenger Charter that lists rules of conduct for a safe interaction with one another on public transport. More info on this and the download can be found below!



  • The Mobility and Sales Centre is open from Monday to Friday from 8 am until 6 pm. It is closed on Saturdays.
  • The option of buying tickets on board has been suspended. All sales outlets can be found here.
  • If a travel card is renewed, there is a discount of 10 per cent on the purchase price. Further info can be found here.



  • From 15.2. onwards, we will also be using additional school buses and trams again for the normal timetable. Timetable info can be found here.
  • The first door is closed on our buses. The first row of seats is not available.
  • When passengers wish to alight, all doors are opened in the trams. This also applies when a passenger at a tram stop signals that he or she wishes to travel with the tram. This excludes vehicles of the 500 and 600 series (no central opening).
  • We ensure that only trams with a driver’s cab are used. If it is necessary for operational reasons, vehicles without a driver’s cab will also be used. In these vehicles, the first door and the first three rows of seats are not available.
  • The night line has been suspended.
  • All vehicles are cleaned every day and even more intensively than usual.
