Still looking. In the meantime, enjoy this video I found:

Follow tram line "D" all the way through the city from its southern terminus (Südbahnhof) to Nussdorf in the far north in just 10 minutes.

I can't find any self-taken pics of the new S-Bahn trains' interiors now, but I found some on the web:

And more shared bus/tram stops and tracks. All taken from Fanpage der Wiener Linien.









These beautiful old busses have been out of service for nearly two years now.

Vienna is so lucky to have such a great system.

The German speaking world does public transport so well.

Every single are out of service. I didn't like them anyway, they were uncomfortable, loud and the fumes smell pretty bad as well.

I bet the seats of the new bus series will be replaced by plastic seats like the ULF trams.

but plastic seats are bendable when you sit on them that makes them cosy and sexy

I am a sucker for the wooden type of seats they have in Munich's new subway trains. That would be an excellent solution - sharp looking, easy to clean and hygienically sensible.
Compare:

Munich...


...and Vienna...

I know which design I prefer. (I'm not talking about the seating layout, btw.)

Judged by pictures what I've seen, are Munich's subway trains the best designed imo.

Wow. So Ikea has now entered the railway car designing business. What's the name? Gloonborg?
