Our company was born from one great vision: to create a rail link between Locarno and Domodossola and to connect our Canton with the rest of Switzerland via the Simplon. The territory in which we operate extends from Lake Maggiore to the surrounding valleys, crossed by roads and rail tracks that reach even the most remote areas and represent the heart of our business.
Since 1923 we have had many successes and challenges. In an ever-changing market, we have constantly renewed ourselves. We have increased the quality of our offer. We have dedicated ourselves to our infrastructure. We have developed a corporate culture that is increasingly oriented towards the customer and the needs of public and tourist transport.
The future holds new challenges for us. We are preparing for them by investing in our company and our employees. Together we will realise important new projects.
