In 2019, the ÖBB initiated an upgrade programme for the renewal of double-decker trains (DOSTO). In this way, approx. 100 coaches are to be optimised to the modern Cityjet standard by 2023. The modernisation comprises amongst other things on-board WLAN, reupholstered seats, multi-purpose areas in each intermediate coach with more space for bicycles, prams and baggage as well as newly-designated quiet zones.
In May 2022, halfway through the running DOSTO upgrade programme, the electric locomotive 1116 181 was painted in the Cityjet-design. In this way, the ÖBB is sending an important signal advertising their attractive public transport offers, in particular for local commuter transport in Lower Austria.
