You can easily walk, take the free city bikes (1 Euro deposit) with easy choice of drop-offs, take the public tram. Almost impossible to get lost.

There are wonderful sights to see around the ringstrasse and in my opinion these are best enjoyed on foot. The yellow tourist tram (from Schwedenplatz) whizzes round in 25 minutes for 9 euros and you don't really get the best views of what's on offer....More
