Bundled on-demand transportation; application for a permit.

The paid or businesslike transportation of passengers in bundled on-demand transport is subject to the provisions of the Passenger Transportation Act (PBefG) and is therefore generally subject to approval.



The licensing requirements are set out in Section 13 (1), (5a) of the Passenger Transportation Act and the Ordinance on Professional Access to Road Passenger Transportation.

  • The entrepreneur or the persons appointed for the management must be reliable.
  • The entrepreneur or the persons appointed for the management must be professionally suitable.
  • The company must be secure and financially efficient.
  • The company's registered office or place of business must be in Austria (in the sense of commercial law).
  • No threat to traffic efficiency


You must apply to the responsible district government for approval to operate a bundled on-demand service.

The district government conducts a hearing procedure. As part of this process, it requests comments from other bodies, including the following

  • Municipalities,
  • trade supervisory authorities,
  • the Chamber of Industry and Commerce
  • the relevant trade unions and professional associations.

After the deadline for the comments has expired, it makes a final decision on the application and informs the applicant in writing of the result.



Note: If you wish to apply for a permit renewal, a permit application with required documentation must be submitted to the appropriate office well in advance of the expiration of the expiring permit.

Processing time

Usually, the competent body will decide on your application within three months of submission of the verifiable application.
