By Ralf Tinga / Updated: 06 Aug 2018


In the first half of 2018, the City of Vienna registered a record number of cyclists on its bike paths. Between January and June, the Mobility Agency of Vienna counted 3.67 million cyclists. This is an increase of around 5 % in comparison to 2017.

Since 2011, Vienna has seen a rise in cycling, although figures remained constant in 2016 and 2017.

The Mobility Agency of Vienna counts cyclists at 12 locations within the city, including two spots where the count is displayed for cyclists to see.

In 2017, bicycle trips made up 7 % of the total of journeys in Vienna.
