Welcome to the FOT

Welcome to the Federal Office of Transport (FOT) website. The FOT is the supervisory authority responsible for public transport in Switzerland. This covers many different modes of transport: railways, cableways, ships, trams and buses. Freight transport, too, falls within the FOT’s remit. The FOT is responsible for safety, finance and infrastructures, as well as the legal and political frameworks of all these transport modes.

In addition to basic information in English, the FOT website also provides comprehensive information in German, French and Italian.
