SAM - shared taxi in East Styria

Since January 2020, the "Sammeltaxi Oststeiermark - SAM" has been available in the Almenland Nature Park. This micro-public transport system runs 7 days a week, from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. with regional taxi providers at reasonable prices. SAM complements the existing public transport in 62 municipalities as a delivery and pick-up service for the first and last "mile" and provides mobility in regions without public transport. In addition, SAM is a mobility alternative for the environmentally conscious renunciation of a car and a feeder to car and bike sharing as well as other mobility offers in the region.

How does it work?

Taxi rides can be pre-ordered and are processed at the exact time. For spontaneous rides, there is a maximum waiting time of one hour. The shared taxi picks up the guests at the nearest meeting point (SAM sign), which must be announced when ordering.
Early bookings increase the possibilities of shared rides!
