Machbarkeitsstudie Straßenbahnlinie 13

With about 42.000 passengers per day, the bus line 13A is one of the most frequented bus lines of Vienna.

In the frame of a feasibility study, the conversion of the 13A into a tram line should be analyzed. Thereby, the following work packages have been successfully implemented by komobile:

Analysis of problems

  • Inquiry of parking lots and bicylce parking areas in public space
  • Inquiry of buildings uses along the bus line
  • Inquiry of parking lots in the surrounding parking garages
  • Analysis of delays through consultation of RBL-data of "Wiener Linien"


Alignment of the tram line 13

  • Assessment of critical situations in location plan and longitudinal intersection (through SPP)
  • Elimination of technically not feasible variants
  • Alignment of two different variants in the location plan and longitudinal intersection (SPP), for each of these two variants:
  • Presentation of cross sections (before/after) for almost 100 positions along both routes
  • Traffic organization for individual motorized transport and bicycles
  • Parking space and pedestrian area balance
  • Visualization (together with stadtland) and illustrated location plans
  • Rough cost estimate
  • Route recommendation


Project organisation

  • Coordination of internal and external communication (data inquiries etc.)
  • Organisation and technical preparation of four workshops with Wiener Linien and departments of the city of Vienna
