The KaiserJet connects the village centres of Ellmau, Going, Scheffau and Söll with all cable car valley stations, bathing lakes, the Kaiserbad (open air pool, indoor pool, wellness, climbing hall, tennis hall) and the excursion destinations throughout the region. The Kaiserjet ‘flies’ through the region every half an hour until beginning of Ocotber and every hour from beginning to end of October. In summer, the KaiserJet village evening bus also takes you to the four villages in the evenings from Tuesday to Friday. This way you can enjoy the summer concerts and village evenings without a car.
This free hikers’ bus runs daily between the Ellmau Dorf/Bauhof bus stop the trailhead of the hike to the Wochenbrunner Alm Alpine hut. Passengers can change to/from the KaiserJet and regular buses at the Ellmau Dorf/Bauhof bus stop.
The Hintersteiner See hiking bus, also free with Wilder Kaiser Card, runs daily between Scheffau Dorf and Hintersteiner See lake (alternating between the west and east shores). You can change at the Scheffau Dorf stop from/to the KaiserJet and to the regular buses.
Group transport Hintersteiner See hiking bus: Due to the tight timetable, no special trips for groups are possible. Groups can use the lake bus in the same way as individual guests and, if necessary, split up between several turni (=waiting time!). Groups (from 10 persons) without Wilder Kaiser GästeCard can order their own, shuttle directly from our taxi providers (not free of charge).
A free hiking bus runs 6 times a day from the Ellmau Dorf/Bauhof bus stop to the Hüttling hiking starting point and back. Transfer from/to KaiserJet and the public buses is possible at the Going bathing lake.

Wilder Kaiser GuestCard = public transport ticket
The Wilder Kaiser GuestCard is your ticket for local public transport. Simply show it to the bus driver when boarding and explore the region free of charge. The guest card is available directly at your booked accommodation without additional charge.More
1. Can residents, accommodation providers, second-home owners and employees in tourism also travel free of charge by public bus?
All persons who have a permanent main or secondary residence in the region and who can therefore (theoretically) make use of the VVT’s 365 day offer, are not covered by the carriage regulation. This applies to all residents and thus also to accommodation providers. VVT monthly passes have been available at every tourist information office since June 2019. All BürgerCard (ResidentCard), FreizeitwohnsitzCard (HolidayHomeCard) or StaffCard holders can borrow these passes free of charge up to 10 times a year and thus make use of the public transport system throughout Tirol! This offer is 100% financed by the tourist board.
2. I don't have a smartphone. Can I still take the bus from the train station to the region free of charge?
Yes, the Wilder Kaiser guest card can be sent by email in advance and printed out at home.
3. My accommodation provider cannot or does not want to send me the Wilder Kaiser guest card in advance by email or to my mobile phone. What are my options?
In this case, you unfortunately cannot take advantage of the free bus journey and have to buy a regular ticket. Alternatively, you can use the Wilder Kaiser train station shuttle, which will take you directly to your accommodation for €15 per person. On the day of departure, you can use the bus to arrive back to the departure station free of charge with your guest card.
4. Can the accommodation provider send me the guest card in advance by post?
Unfortunately, it is not possible for the accommodation provider to issue a physical guest card before check-in.
5. I have a guest card and would like to take a day trip from Ellmau, Going, Scheffau or Söll to Innsbruck by bus and train. Do I have to pay full price?
In this instance, you can take the bus to Wörgl free of charge. From here you only have to buy a train ticket from Wörgl to Innsbruck (buy at the counter, ticket.vvt.at or from the bus driver).
