The regulars’ pass for bus trips to Austria’s highest mountain

Here’s how easy it is to become a regular: achieve a minimum turnover of 300 Euros as a bus business or tour operator on the Grossglockner High Alpine Road within a calendar year. Your reward: receive a turnover-based, graded reimbursement at the end of the year as holder of a regulars’ pass.
