Ac­ces­si­bil­i­ty at Graz Lin­ien

Graz Linien put their faith in accessibility. Together with the city of Graz and the Passengers Advisory Board, we are creating solutions for people with disabilities.

All buses in Graz are low-floor buses. Seventy-five trams out of 85, i.e. around 90% are barrier-free. In addition, we also have 17 articulated buses with the orientation and information system (TYFLOSET) in use for the improved orientation of blind people and people with visual impairments.

Tick­ets:

People with impaired mobility receive hourly and 24-hour tickets for half the normal price. However, to receive this they must present the orange-coloured disability pass or the new disability pass in cheque card format. The degree of disability entered in the disability pass must be at least 70%. An accompanying person and assistance dogs will be transported free of charge.

Wheelchair users and peo­ple with im­paired mo­bil­i­ty:

  • Info pillars at most stops displaying the low-floor trams (marked with “N” or with the wheelchair symbol).
  • Specially marked doors (with a wheelchair symbol) make it easier to get on and off; a blue push-button prevents the automatic closure of the door.
  • During the journey, wheelchairs are to be fastened with the safety belts provided for this purpose.
  • Our entire fleet of buses comprises low-floor buses.

Blind per­sons and per­sons with vi­su­al im­pair­ments

  • At almost all tram stops there is a tactile guidance system. The tram stops so that it is possible to get on directly where the driver is.
  • There are info pillars with acoustic announcements or (in the case of accompanying persons) displays about barrier-free boarding which is marked by “N” for low-floor or by the wheelchair symbol.
  • Stops are displayed acoustically. The screen view of the ticket machines in the trams can be set to “high-contrast” with a button under the screen.

Deaf per­sons and peo­ple with im­paired hear­ing

  • Approaching trams are displayed on the info pillars visually.
  • The next stop is displayed in the vehicle on a screen.
  • Cancellations and route changes are displayed on a screen.
  • Stops are announced via a LCD display; in addition there are route maps in all vehicles.
