More people than ever taking the train

Swiss Federal Railways is back in the black after haemorrhaging cash during the covid years.

In the first six months of the year, the rail network made CHF 99m profit – compared to a loss of CHF 142m in the same period last year.

In the first quarter of this year, passenger numbers exceeded pre-covid figures for the first time since the pandemic. 

The number or people taking the train is higher than ever before – 3% higher than 2019. 

It’s not just Swiss passengers though, more people are using the train to travel internationally.
