Description FOT-Stoplist

The Federal Office of Public Transport ( FOT ) stop list is a publication of stops of the Swiss public transport system as well as additional operating points that are relevant for timetable planning. The publication therefore only includes subsets of data from DiDok according to the specifications of the BAV.

The lists are aimed at users who wish to look up information on stops “manually”. They are not suitable for regular, automatic data retrieval (e.g. for applications). The following exports are published for this purpose:
