I always find it very convenient to combine a hiking tour with a bus ride and with the Alpbachtal Seenland Card, you even can use the bus fro free. Just show the Card when you enter the the bus. There two bus stations in Alpbach, both in the centre not far from each other, called “Raika” (opposite of the bank “Raiffeisenkasse” and “Böglerhof” (a hotel). From there you can go to Inneralpbach or to Brixlegg via Reith (line 4074). Busses go about hourly.
There are two gondola lifts in that region, one in Alpbach and one in Reith, the neighbour town. Plus one in Kramsach, the Sonnwendjochbahn, a chair lift for one person each. And in winter, there are additional ski lifts.
The gondola lift in Alpbach goes up to the Wiedersberger Horn and is for 6 persons, the one in Reith goes up to the Reither Kogel and is for 8 persons. I’m terrible afraid of heights but we still made it up to the Wiedersberger Horn with that gondola lift. It was okay, it’s not that heigh, but I was happy when we finally were up after a bit more than 15 minutes!
They normally start at 9am, there’s a lunch break and the last gondola usually goes between 4 and 5pm, so you need to plan accordingly.
With the Alpbach Seenland Card it’s free, otherwise it’s 14,50 € (adults)/ 7,50 € (children) for the return trip for the Wiedersbergerhornbahn and the Sonnwendjochbahn, with lower fees when you only go up or only go down (summer 2011). The Reitherkogelbahn is 11,50 € (adults) and 6 € (children).
