Stop on request from the 5th of March

On the S30 line for the stops Quartino, S. Nazzaro and Gerra (Gambarogno).

From the 5th of March 2018, the S30 connections will stop in Quartino, S. Nazzaro and Gerra (Gambarogno) only on request. This measure is part of a energy saving project.

SBB and TILO are becoming more environmentally friendly. From the 5th of March, a pilot project will be introduced on the S30 line. For stations Quartino, S. Nazzaro and Gerra (Gambarogno), the train stop must be requested.

At the station, customers will find the new pressure switches for the stop on request next to the ticket machines. Temporarily, the customers are informed by information panels about the measure. On the train, customers will find pictograms and will be informed by voice announcements. To request a stop the customers have to press the button on the train doors.

As part of the TOP Energy Saving Program, technical improvements to rolling stock and buildings are carried out. In addition, measures for railway production and offer planning are also implemented.

In regional traffic, around 10% of the stops are not used for boarding or alighting and are potential transit points and thus have energy-saving potential.
