Basic rules when travelling.

Safety takes top priority at SBB. You too can play a part in ensuring travel is enjoyable without any unnecessary risks by adhering to basic rules on proper behaviour on public transport.

SBB attaches great importance to the safety of customers and employees. That’s why it has been investing in state-of-the-art technology for years to make already extremely safe rail operations even safer. Safety in the stations and aboard trains is provided by the SBB transport police in cooperation with the Cantonal Police.

Proper behaviour.

You too can play a part in making sure rail travel remains safe and on time. By following some basic rules when travelling: wait behind the white safety line, never cross the tracks and stay away from power lines.

SBB’s brochure ‘Mit Sicherheit besser ankommen’ (Safe Arrival) explains the basic rules on how to behave properly on public transport. The videos of the ‘Happy End’ prevention campaign launched by the Federal Office of Transport, the Swiss Council for Accident Prevention and SBB also look at high-risk behaviour and highlight the consequences it can have. They then show the behaviour required to avoid accidents and ensure journeys end well.
