With the BusBahnBim App you will always find the best route in all of Austria: whether by public transport, on foot, by bike or by car. Based on the Traffic Information Austria (VAO), the multimodal app is working multimodally – you can also combine with functions like Bike & Ride, Park & Ride, Kiss & Ride and Car Train.

For example, the current traffic situation can also be included, including construction sites, congestion, delays, diversions, etc. Also stop-call names are no longer necessary for the query, by activating the GPS-positioning, the current location can be used as the starting point. Optionally, the desired destination address, a street name or point of interest can be used.

Ratings and Reviews
I have yet to fiddle around with this app for a longer period of time time, but right off the bat it seems really great! Has all the necessary features and some additional neat ways to customize settings etc. Also the UI is very clean and pleasant to use.
It would be nice to be able to change the in-app language in the settings and also it would be very practical to be able to set the map to satelite/hybrid mode.
I've been waiting for an app like this for some time now ;)
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
