Almost the first underground in New York

Vienna Metro is an important component of public transport in Austria and the capital currently consists of 5 lines. Although the official opening took place only in 1976, this network includes sections of track built at the turn of the XIX and XX centuries. At the same time it should be said that she Vienna, like many other European cities, has a well developed network of rail lines, consisting of the ground (S-Bahn) and underground (U-Bahn) lines underground. However, a clear distinction between the tram and metro in the capital of Austria is very difficult to conduct as many tram lines simultaneously perform the functions of the subway. They provide a quick and comfortable connection to the outskirts of the city center. At the same time, some subway lines operated tramway rolling stock, which is only slightly modified compared to cars running on standard tram lines.
