Implementation of measures related to railway access for the disabled

Federal Office of Transport

Key facts

The mandate to implement railway access for the disabled in accordance with the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) has been in place since 1 January 2004. This sets an implementation deadline of end-2023. Implementation in Switzerland is the responsibility of the infrastructure operators, of which there are around 35. The focus to date has been on full structural renovations of railway stations. The stations renovated in line with the law offer quality gains to all travellers.
