Public Transport

Public passenger transport will play an increasingly important role in the future. Rail transport in Europe and Switzerland has been growing steadily in recent years. This applies to all railways, from national to regional and urban railways. At the same time, an unprecedented internationalisation of the railways is taking place. This is particularly evident in cross-border passenger transport in the peripheral regions of Switzerland, as well as in the transit transport of goods.

The additional load on the railway system is currently leading to numerous challenges for developers and infrastructure operators. The existing system must be maintained and at the same time sustainably expanded in order to accommodate the growing population in Switzerland and increased mobility behaviour. New topics such as digitalisation and combined transport are also creating new opportunities that need to be exploited to the full.

The experienced team at Drees & Sommer Switzerland supports you in setting up, planning and realising your rail projects. Our project managers, engineers, consultants and site managers contribute their expertise to major railway projects as well as light rail and tramway projects in the national and international environment. Customers benefit from our international experience and network as well as our innovative strength.
