At least his highly polished silver luxury company car still works – the car is probably better maintained than metro trains for “normal” taxpayers: Public transport councilor Peter Hankey (SPO) for several weeks Ignoring daily reports from eXpress and other media. About the increasingly failing metro trains and the huge crisis on the Vienna lines. Apparently the Finance and Public Transport city council must not be really sentimental about the fact that its citizens in Vienna are having trouble every day due to metro failures.
Today, Tuesday, two subway trains were canceled again due to malfunctions: at 5:25 am on the U3 line, then a little later at 7:55 am on the U1. Operational disruption on the U4 line was also troublesome.
Even yesterday, three subway trains were out of service, and last week Wiener Linien insiders also reported faulty subway trains almost every day – they, the dedicated employees of the transportation company, were angry over long-standing maintenance and repair work, Whereas in Vienna the city apparently has enough tax money for many other areas.
The problems of public transport are being ignored by the city government for the last three weeks. When everything is running again, city government employees will proudly post screenshots saying “everything is fine anyway”…
