We make sure funds are deployed effectively and efficiently

Attractive services in regional public transport, efficient rail freight traffic, and a well-developed and maintained rail infrastructure: all this is made possible by the work of the Finance Division. Together with the transport companies we search for the best solution in each case and are responsible each year for the allocation of subsidies to the tune of several billion Swiss francs. This is a great responsibility. It is our aim to handle taxpayers’ money as economically as possible. The money spent should bring the greatest possible benefits. At the same time, we are committed to making sure service users pay an appropriate proportion of the costs of public transport, for example, by setting suitable train path prices.
