Public Transport Departure Monitor ÖBB

Check out my updated version of the ÖBB Monitor:

This is how you create your custom departure monitor card for public transport in Austria.

In this example I, want to see the next trains going from Wien Hbf to Wien Floridsdorf.

Step-by-step instructions:

  1. Go to Scotty, enter the name of your departure station and click “Display information”.

  2. Click the button next to “open it in a popup window”

  3. Copy the URL of the popup window

  4. Go to your Homeassistant Dashboard, create a new Webpage card and paste the URL.

  5. To get the monitor to only show the connections we want, we need to know the unique ID of the destination station.
    Once again, go to Scotty, enter your destination station and click “Display information”.

  6. Again, click on the button next to “open it in a popup window”.
    The unique station ID can be obtained from the URL in the popup window.

  7. Go to your Homeassistant Dashboard and edit the previously created Webpage card.
    Paste the stop ID from previous step next to “dirInput=”

Additional customizability:
The monitor can be customized by editing the URL.

Great work. Thanks a lot for these explanations. I was searching already on ÖBB‘s website for more details on filtering the results, but didn‘t find it. Thanks again Dave!
