Key facts

At the end of 2021, around 2,450 cableway installations were in operation in Switzerland. Of these, around 660 have a federal licence and are under the supervision of the Federal Office of Transport (FOT). As part of regional passenger transport (RPT), 34 cableways are jointly ordered and paid for by the federal government and the cantons. The cantons are responsible for the licensing and supervision of the remaining cableways.
