ÖBB carries more passengers


ÖBB’s regional transport services have attracted more passengers in the first three months of 2012, the company’s CEO, Christian Kern announced.
e claimed that two thirds of new ÖBB customers were former motorists who were now opting for the train due to the sky-high car fuel prices. Kern added that people also appreciated ÖBB’s decision to replace old seats on many trains with new models.
Kern said that the decisive duel would not be  ÖBB against new operator Westbahn, but railway passenger services against the road.
