smartrail 4.0: working together to achieve our goals.
Smartrail 4.0 is a programme of the Swiss railway sector. The goal is to ensure interoperability between vehicle and system, and to use synergies and experience from the sector and from other international railways.
It is being driven forward by the four railway companies SBB, BLS, Schweizerische Südostbahn AG (SOB) and the Rhaetian Railway (RhB), as well as the Union of Public Transport (UPT). The five main partners work closely together under the leadership of SBB.
Industry and sector representatives collaborate within the programme. This includes the railway industry, other railway companies from Switzerland and Europe, scientific partners, authorities at home and abroad, service companies and many more.
