Local Transport

Well connected at all altitudes: the public transport system links the valley with the mountains and the towns with the mountain villages

A sustainable holiday is all the more relaxing when mobility on-site is guaranteed. If you are travelling to South Tyrol without a car, you can be sure that you can easily reach your destination or accommodation by bus or train. The bus and train timetables are carefully coordinated so that there is always a connection from the train stations to the surrounding towns and villages and you can complete the last leg to your accommodation by public transport. Simply hop on board and enjoy the bus journey through the vineyards, villages and idyllic countryside.

Want to travel from the city right up to the mountaintop? Easy access to the higher-altitude towns and villages has a long-standing tradition in South Tyrol. The cable cars in the region will transport you up to the mountain villages and starting point for various walks in just a few minutes, all year round.

Keen to take advantage of public transport to discover South Tyrol? It’s all possible thanks to the Südtirol Guest Pass! Many participating accommodations offer this card, which is included in the room price and provides unlimited and free access to all means of transport across South Tyrol.

Bus, train and cable car in one

The südtirolmobil combined system simplifies the use of public transport with one single ticket.

Public transport mobility across South Tyrol is merged within the südtirolmobil  combined system, bringing together city and overland lines, city buses and regional trains on the rail network of South Tyrol (between Brenner/Brennero and Trento). The Kaltern/Mendelpass Funicular Railway, the Rittnerbahn railway and the cable cars in Ritten/Renon, Jenesien/San Genesio Atesino, Vorän/Verano, Mölten/Meltina and Meransen/Maranza can also be used with a single ticket. The regional trains operate on four lines at half-hourly or hourly intervals:

Brenner line: Brenner/Brennero – Bolzano/Bozen – Trento
Vinschger Bahn railway: Mals/Malles – Meran/Merano
Meran line: Meran/Merano – Bolzano/Bozen
Pustertal valley train: Franzensfeste/Fortezza - Innichen/San Candido-Vierschach/Versciaco

Cycling in South Tyrol

The most sustainable means of transport is undoubtedly the bicycle. You will be rewarded with lots of unforgettable experiences in South Tyrol.

Demanding trails, twisty mountain roads or leisurely bike tours for the whole family. An extensive cycling route network, challenging trails or the hair-pin roads of mountain passes, against a unique panoramic backdrop, make cycling in South Tyrol a very special experience. Discover the region on two wheels: on the Via Claudia Augusta cycle route, you are riding along the oldest Roman road through the Vinschgau valley, then heading further south via Meran/Merano and Bolzano/Bozen; on the valley cycle paths in the Eisacktal and Pustertal valleys you have lovely views of the Dolomites.  

How the bike tour works

South Tyrol can be explored at the ideal pace by e-bike. Enjoy the nature and cuisine of South Tyrol along the well-developed valley cycle paths. No matter which direction you choose, the train is a good option for returning back to the starting point.

A few minutes up to the top

Lift access to the mountains has a long-standing tradition in South Tyrol. The lift facilities today are suitably innovative and spectacular to reflect this.

Work began early on in South Tyrol to secure comfortable and safe access to the higher-altitude towns. The Kohlerer Seilbahn cable car began operation in 1908. This is one of three cable cars in total which links Bolzano/Bozen with the surrounding summer holiday resorts. The second cable car was installed in 1912 from Lana to the Vigiljoch pass. This is still operating today. A great deal has happened since then. 

We present some of the special cable cars in South Tyrol here:

  • The “Big One”: the Sulden Cable Car can transport 110 people in each of its four gondolas, so 440 people at a time, making it one of the largest cable cars in the world.
  • The “Highest”: the Schnalstaler Gletscherbahnen cable car glides from 2,011 metres (Kurzras/Maso Corto) to 3,212 metres (Grawand), home to Europe’s highest altitude mountain hotel.
  • The “Longest”: the journey from Bolzano/Bozen to Ritten/Renon by cable car is 4,560 metres long.
  • The “Most Beautiful”: “A cable car can be beautiful”, says Arch. Arno Gapp who designed a glass cube for the cable car from Latsch/Laces to St. Martin im Kofel/San Martino al Monte.
