Nightjet (stylised as nightjet) is a brand name given by Austrian railway company Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) to its overnight passenger train services.
It was launched in December 2016, replacing some City Night Line services after Deutsche Bahn announced it would stop operating night train services, a change that DB put into effect on 11 December 2016.
Nightjet operates in Austria, Germany, Italy and Switzerland. There are services provided by other train companies to Croatia, Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Slovenia that operate under the Nightjet Partner label.
Nightjet trains offers beds in sleeper carriages (Nightjet's most comfortable service category), couchette carriages, and seated carriages. On certain connections, cars can also be transported on the train. Bikes can be transported in a bike transport bag, or on some connections also in special bike racks.
Environmental organizations welcomed the decision of ÖBB to extend their night train network because night trains are the most climate-friendly way of travelling longer distances in Europe. ÖBB has declared that passenger numbers are growing, and is planning to buy new carriages and modernize existing carriages. In 2017 the NightJet services carried 1.4m passengers. In 2018 the number had grown to 1.6m. The service is being operated with over 42 sleeping carriages of various ages inherited from DB. ÖBB expect to replace them with 13 new night trains by 2022.
