SBB. Connecting Switzerland.

SBB is the backbone of the Swiss public transport system. We have been transporting goods and people for over 100 years. SBB connects people, goods and places, bringing millions of people together and linking up cities, cantons and rural regions. Day in, day out, our connections are there for Switzerland. SBB is a reliable partner of the Swiss government, cantons, municipalities and suppliers.

Integrated rail is the heart of what we do. It comprises the business areas of passenger services, real estate, freight services and infrastructure. This is SBB’s core business, run in the interest of our customers. Its foundation is the railway infrastructure with its rail, energy and telecoms networks.

With over 150 careers and more than 33,500 employees, SBB is one of Switzerland’s largest employers. Our employees make SBB the backbone of the public transport system and ensure that our customers reach their destination safely, reliably and on time. Now and in the future.

By 2030, SBB intends to be economically stable and to better anticipate customer needs, providing a public service for Switzerland. SBB also aims to deliver targeted and smart growth in areas where rail has its strengths, to be a leader in sustainability and to provide a railway run by people, for people.
