Further development of Switzerland’s outstanding public transport system
The FOT is committed to ensuring that Switzerland’s outstanding public transport system can be operated sustainably. It monitors the continual adaptation of public transport to changing needs and developments. One of the FOT’s key tasks is to ensure a high but cost-effective safety standard for railways, buses, ships and cableways. The FOT also makes a high-quality transport service available with an efficient use of resources. It ensures that the necessary infrastructure is constructed on time and in accordance with regulations. As one of the key transport hubs in Europe, Switzerland can only fulfil these tasks in close cooperation with its neighbours and with the European Union. The FOT is in regular contact with partners in Switzerland and abroad.
