There are several factors serving as a basis for a successful public transport model, such as modern, comfortable stations. In 2008 platform height was increased at Rio Pusteria/Mühlbach, Casteldarne/Ehrenburg, San Lorenzo/St.Lorenzen, Brunico/Bruneck and Valdaora/Olang stations in order to grant unrestricted access to the new FLIRT trains. Lifts have also been installed to improve platform access for passengers with wheelchairs, prams and bicycles. All platforms and subways have been fitted with tactile paving. In 2009 refurbishing is due to start at Fortezza/Franzensfeste, Vandoies/Vintl, Villabassa/Niederdorf, Monguelfo/Welsberg and Dobbiaco/Toblach stations.
