Which stop list should I use?
Even just on opentransport.swiss, there are several lists and tables of stops in Switzerland. More can be found on other platforms and portals. Because all the data on stops in Switzerland comes from DiDok, this dataset is to be regarded as the most original and most up-to-date source of information. There is also the station list, which is an extract from the current timetable dataset (HRDF) and which serves as a basis for requests concerning the departure/arrival Display.
According to which principle are the didok abbreviations assigned?
The abbreviations are assigned according to availability. The current rules are as follows:
- The abbreviation begins with the same letter as the name
- Maximum length four characters.
