Timetable changes

From the 9th of December 2018.

With the timetable change of the 9th December 2018, the measures introduced on the 2nd of September have been confirmed.  Planned are also other changes to improve the service.

Main measures for timetable stability
On the 2nd of September 2018 measures were introduced to improve punctuality between Chiasso and Mendrisio, for example the terminus for the S10 and S40 links in Como S. Giovanni, and the introduction of two new RE10 links. In view of the good results of these measures, they will be included in the 2019 timetable.
