Study of rail potential for international connections – Long distance and regional perspectives

As part of the Conseil Fédéral’s reflections to redefine its rail strategy for 2050, the OFT wishes to deepen its investigations on the potential of rail to offer competitive, reliable and attractive travel offers towards European countries, in a perspective of transferring from plane and car to rail. To this end, 6t has been charged with this task and proposes a four-phase approach to answer these questions.

In the first phase, the aim is to review the available scientific literature and to analyse past experiences in which the train has been able to gain users and market shares compared to the car and the plane. Secondly, a detailed quantitative analysis of current demand should make it possible to uncover the main connections structuring the European space in relation to Switzerland, both on a continental scale and on the scale of cross-border screens. The links identified beforehand will then be studied from the point of view of the competitiveness of rail compared to other means of transport. Finally, proposals for improving and developing the rail offer will be submitted, paying particular attention to the issues raised by these proposals regarding their macro-economic and environmental consequences. This last part will be based on an exclusive survey of stated preferences conducted among the Swiss population, with an in-depth analysis of the people living within the cross-border screens.
