The City of Vienna and the Vienna Chamber of Commerce jointly support environmentally friendly modes of transport. Taxi companies are an integral part of transportation in Vienna. From 2025, only taxi vehicles that do not emit carbon dioxide will receive a permit.

The city will provide funds in the amount of seven million euros to subsidize taxi companies. In order to ensure the use of electric vehicles and the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions, the city will not finance the purchase of vehicles, but the taxi service, i.e. driving. The subsidy amounts to five euros per working hour of an electric taxi vehicle, and the total amount is limited to 10,000 euros per vehicle. Taxi companies are entitled to financial support for a maximum of 15 electric vehicles.

In order to make charging the battery easier, some vehicles will have a connector on the lower part of the car that will be connected to the charging plate at the taxi stand. With such automated charging, there will be no need to go to the e-charging station or leave the vehicle at all. In Vienna, eight taxi ranks and 50 vehicles will be equipped in this way.

Companies will be able to apply for subsidies from January 1, 2023. Vienna will continue to rely on an ecological mix of transport including public transport, cycling and pedestrians.
