Transport costs have increased by 4% within five years

Neuchâtel, 08.04.2019 - In 2015, transport in Switzerland generated economic costs of around CHF 90 billion. This was 4% more than in 2010. Aviation (+14%) and rail transport (+12%) recorded the largest increases. In comparison, costs for motorised road transport remained rather stable (+2%) and accounted for four fifths of the total transport costs. None of the various transport user groups fully funded the generated costs themselves. These are the latest figures on the costs and funding of transport from the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).
