Rolling stock for passenger services.
How SBB will travel through the Gotthard Base Tunnel.
SBB has deployed the following rolling stock on the Gotthard Base Tunnel (GBT) route since December 2016:
- International services: eight SBB and seven Trenitalia ETR 610 multiple units.
- National services: the existing rolling stock will be deployed. This consists of 18 InterCity tilting trains and 127 standard InterCity trains (13 Re460 and 114 single wagons).
As a result, the existing fleet’s parts and components had to be retrofitted for national long-distance services through the Gotthard Base Tunnel.
From the end of 2019, SBB plans to gradually deploy 29 new multiple units on the Gotthard route – having commissioned the vehicles from Stadler Rail for CHF 1 billion.
