SBB (Swiss Federal Railways) Let's start with some figures: Every year, SBB transports 354 million passengers. Its 3138 route kilometres make up a high proportion of Switzerland's 5124-km rail network. With the exception of Herisau and Appenzell, all of Switzerland's cantonal capitals are on the SBB network. Over 800 stations have hourly or half-hourly train services. Two-thirds of all freight passing through the Swiss Alps goes by train. SBB Cargo transports 175,000 tonnes of freight by rail every day for its customers. 29,240 railway employees work round the clock to keep trains running safely and punctually. So SBB isn't just the largest travel and transport company in Switzerland, it's also one of the biggest employers.
