The new CFF timetable, which will come into force on December 15, constitutes the biggest timetable change in French-speaking Switzerland since Rail 2000. It must meet customer expectations in terms of punctuality while ensuring the completion of numerous works.

The objective is to improve the offer in the long term, the SBB and the Transport Conference of Western Switzerland (CTSO) indicated on Tuesday in Friborg. Even if the service occasionally deteriorates, the 2025 timetable will bring new direct connections with the west of Lausanne and improvements in regional traffic.

The timetable, which caused discontent among public authorities a year ago, will offer increased services to the Riviera and Lower Valais in particular. Between Bienne and Geneva, customers will benefit from a half-hour rate, subject to a change in Renens (VD). Direct connections are maintained during peak hours.

Schedule reservations

President of the CTSO, Friborg State Councilor Jean-François Steiert praised the “long-term work” which made it possible to improve the initial version of this “site schedule”, with punctuality and reliability highlighted. CFF general director Vincent Ducrot spoke of a “very big change”.

Beyond that, the former federal government will invest one billion francs per year in French-speaking Switzerland, promised Vincent Ducrot. The money will be used to repair the tracks and renovate stations, large and small. This involves creating additional intervals, “schedule reserves”, to allow the work to be carried out.

Evolutionary process

The CFF plans to eventually run 15% more trains. “We worked with the customers in mind,” noted David Fattebert, SBB director for French-speaking Switzerland. State councilors Nuria Gorrite from Vaud and Laurent Favre from Neuchâtel praised the efforts made thanks to the collaboration.

“The cantons will be attentive so that the 2025 timetable is scalable,” insisted Nuria Gorrite. Neuchâtel welcomed the half-hour pace of the journey between its capital and Renens as well as Lausanne, detailed Laurent Favre, knowing that three quarters of Pied du Jura passengers travel to the Vaud capital.

The improvement work ensured the correction of weaknesses, noted the speakers. “We are going to consolidate a common vision within the CTSO,” explained Jean-François Steiert. The new timetable was developed “in concert” between the CFF and the seven cantons of the conference. The consultation opens this Thursday.
