on track and powering ahead

Whatever track gauge you travel on, the members of the SWISSRAIL Industry Association offer services and products for guided transport systems in all sectors: railways, trams, trolley buses and cable cars.

As pioneers and drivers of innovation, you can trust our members for expert advice, proven and future-oriented technologies, and thoroughgoing entrepreneurial drive. All at the high standard you expect from Swiss services and products – with precision, quality and efficiency delivered both consistently and on schedule.

Switzerland’s high-quality, extremely busy public transport system is one of the world’s most challenging test arenas for vehicles and components. Our members know how to cope with a vast array of geographic and meteorological challenges just as successfully as our native animals do. On the ground, in the earth, and in the air in any weather – we can help keep you on track too.
