The TVS capacity allocation body
Railway undertakings should have fair and equal access to the Swiss rail network. We are responsible for the impartial planning, allocation and optimisation of usage rights (train paths) for the standard-gauge rail network.

Use of train paths
Use of the track network is based on a request or an order and the allocation of rights of use. The TVS accepts orders and allocates train paths and ancillary services
Rail freight corridors are an important part of Switzerland’s policy of transferring freight from road to rail. The main role of the TVS here is in helping to coordinate available capacity and providing the framework conditions.
Railway infrastructure register
In accordance with Article 15f of the Railways Ordinance (EBV), the TVS keeps a register of the in-formation required to operate on the rail infrastructure.
The investment plans of the IMs provide information about all the investments they plan to make over the next five years or more to maintain or expand their infrastructure.
