Maybe you should try this website:

http://www.oebb.at/

You can then search for a railway connection to Vienna on your specific time of arrive.

I will be arriving into Bratislava at around 22.30-22.45 on a friday night, what is the easiest and quickest way to get into the Hutteldorf area. Have tried the skyeurope website for connections into Vienna and its says that there are none at that time of night, was hoping that one of the forumers could possibly help me out.
From Bratislava Main Station (Hlavna stanica) there is train to Vienna on friday at 23:00, 23:50, 00:50, train journey takes about 1 hour, so it's no problem to get train from BA to WIE at these hours (at day it's even better, train is going every 30 minutes, Bratislava is just suburbs of Vienna :-))

there is very good connection from Bratislava airport (bus stop Letisko = Airport) to Bratislava Main station (Hlavna stanica) - direct bus line nr 61 - connections at 22:45, 23:05, 23:25 ... so no problem at all

if you arrive at 22:45 you will buy ticket for public transport (60min ticket = 70 eurocents in newspaper booths or ticket machines, don't forget to sign your ticket in bus, otherwise you will get 50€ fine from A-holes loving this tourist line, there is also english warning on back side of public transport ticket), trip from airport to main (train) station takes only 20 minutes and then you can buy ticket for train (or you can buy it in train if you are lazy, it's surcharge only about 1.5€ if buying in train from conductor), so you will take bus line 61 at 23:05 to Main station (Hlavna stanica), it's final stop, you will arive at 23:25 to MS and you have lot of time to buy ticket for train departing at 23:50 from Main station to Wien Sudbanhof Ost, you will be there at 01:03 AM (if I remember correctly Vienna trains are going from plattform 2, but check on table inside BA Main station), ticket for train should cost about 7€ if they haven't raised prices too much (you can't find this price on web, only if you write e-mail to slovakrail.sk they will answer you e-mail in couple of hours with exact price from Bratislava Hlavna Stanica to Wien Sudbanhof Ost, they are pretty quick (at least with slovak e-mails))

if you have any other questions don't be affraid to ask in Slovakia forum - Mimo temu (Off topic) thread

btw. sleeping in Bratislava, is MUCH cheaper than in Vienna (if you don't have problem with hostels and aren't affraid of cannibals :-)), and you can go to Vienna at any time at morning, as I said there are trains every 30 minutes (if you count with Petrzalka train station, otherwise every 60 minutes from Main station), maybe on weekend it's little worse

EDIT: You can find train/bus connections from Slovakia here www.cp.sk there is also english version, From=Bratislava (Hlavna Stanica), to=Wien (Sudbahnhof Ost) you can also look there for Bratislava public transport connections from aiport, you must just change category to Bratislava otherwise there is good site about Bratislava public transport www.imhd.sk they should have also english version, then Planovac cesty = Route planner and you need to enter there From=Letisko (Airport), To=Hlavna stanica (Main station) for public (bus) transport connections

no, only few times, last time in 2007 when I was on Iranian (it's close enough by walk to WSbO so no need to use public transport) and Pakistanian embassy/consulate so I used only U-bahn and trams, it was that day with bank robbery (nothing common with me:-)) in Vienna so everywhere were police cars and sirens :-) They are selling round trip train join tickets from BA-WIE-BA with 24hr public transport ticket for OK price, I think it's same in reverse way WIE-BA-WIE, my roundtrip ticket incl. public transport cost something about 10-12 euros then

Thanks for all the info guys,, it is always better to ask real people than to trust an airline website. As i say, i wont be making the trip until March so i have plenty of time to sort out the travel arrangements now.
Thanks for the advice about sleeping over as well, but i will be staying with family in Vienna, so hopefully they dont charge me.

What is the highest speed for ULF trams???
Has any of the drivers tried to give highest speed to this trams?

Has anyone tested it?

I know that in ULF technical data is written 70 km/h maximum but I'm pretty sure that it can more.

cause in tram's technical data's is always written the maximum speed on which the fabric gives garanties that the tram will work properly but in fact if you accelerate it can reach more.

now waiting for answer?

Can ULF's reahc more than 70 km/h?

in internet you wil find that it's maximum speed is 70 km/h cause this is vritten in UOF's technical data

it's always like this but in reality trams can accelerate more.

for example in TMK 2200 (Crotram) tram's technical data is written maximum 70 km/h. but in reality in Zagreb this trams have reached speed 87 km/h.

now you understand
I don;t think that in Vienna Ulf's going so fast they run very slow as I;ve seen from videos.
