Audit Implementation of measures related to railway access for the disabled - Federal Office of Transport

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.

Audit Subsidies - Federal Office of Civil Aviation

The special financing for air transportation is an instrument that allows the Confederation to provide financial support for measures that concern national aviation. By granting financial assistance, the special financing for air transportation aims to limit the impact of air traffic on the environment, strengthen defences against unlawful acts against aviation (security) and promote a high level of technical safety in air travel. The Federal Office of Civil Aviation (FOCA) has between CHF 45 and 49 million available annually for this purpose, depending on mineral oil tax and surtax receipts.
