The busline 24A is located in the 22nd district of Vienna (Donaustadt). The reconstructed route from 2005 and todays route are basically the same as they lead drive from Kagraner Platz to Invalidensiedlung. In addition, the former busline 24A of 2005 was even longer as you could drive to Kagran - the former final stop of the subway line U1 before its extension which had been a huge and important hub for bus lines and tram lines. When the U1-extension in September 2006 took place, the busline 24A was shortened to Kagraner Platz and changed to low-floor operation which marked the end of the last high-floor bus LU 200 on this route.

The main route takes you from Kagran (U) to Invalidensiedlung. According to schedule the line can be shortened to Breitenlee Schule or Neueßling.

Bus type LU 200 M11 of Wiener Linien (Viennas public transport company)
The LU 200 M11 (=regular service bus with underfloor engine, 200 hp, 11m long) was especially constructed by the Austrian manufacturer ÖAF Gräf & Stift and Steyr-Daimler Puch for Wiener Linien. The body is similar to the first generation of German VÖV standard urban regular service buses but it has an additional third passenger door in the back as it is common for Vienna buses. The bus uses a spark ignition engine for LPG operation.
Consisting of 345 buses, the LU 200 is by far the biggest bus series in the history of Wiener Linien and was manufactured as the longest too (1978-1992). The last LU 200 was used for public transport by Wiener Linien on 21 May 2007. The very last LU 200 served as a driving school bus and was finally retired after about 30 years on 9 March in 2009.
