SBB maps and station plans

Under the name Trafimage, the most comprehensive map of public transport in Switzerland is made available with the route networks of all modes of transport. In the Trafimage system, over 300 maps for the SBB are published annually - from the large overview map for travelers to the internal electricity network map. Trafimage is open to everyone and is used in particular by other public transport companies, e.g. PostBus or BLS, but also by authorities or associations such as the VöV. The maps are available both as print posters and in digital form. The digital maps can be found on steles in the train stations, on monitors on the train, integrated into SBB websites and in a combined form in the Trafimage web map portal.

Another important component of Trafimage are the station plans. In more than 100 SBB train stations, the Trafimage train station maps print posters help travelers find their way around. The 35 largest Swiss stations are equipped with particularly easy-to-understand and appealing three-dimensional station plans. In addition to the printed posters, they are also available as an interactive train station map on the web, on mobile and on digital steles in the train station.

Always up to date

The Trafimage maps are complex products into which geodata from different sources and current timetable information flow. The resulting current network is processed with GIS tools developed by geOps and graphically optimized by means of generalization. The data integration from different sources takes place automatically and is constantly being expanded and further optimized. To display departure times and visualize the SBB's punctuality, both web maps and the interactive station map access our real-time service with current train positions and delay information. The freely available data not only cover Switzerland but all of Europe.
