Online en route. Now available on a range of new routes.
Swisscom and SBB offer you a total of 75 1st class coaches with Business Zones featuring mobile broadband internet access so that you can also work online on the train. In addition to the Zurich-Berne route, on which this service is already available, you can now benefit from an internet connection between Geneva and Lausanne and between Berne and Thun.
So why not use your journey on SBB to surf the internet, send e-mails or access your company's intranet, while enjoying all the benefits of working online on the move? Your seat on an SBB train turns into a mobile workspace, and you can work just as efficiently as you would in the office.
You can benefit from the "Online en route" service on the following routes:
Trains with mobile broadband access run on the following lines:
- Basel SBB – Zürich HB – Chur
- Genève Aéroport – Bern – Zürich HB – St. Gallen

Business Zones in 1st class coaches can be identified from the outside by the business pictogram, while on the inside a hotspot pictogram shows customers where they can access the "Online en route" service. Business Zones with access to mobile broadband can be found in the first coach behind the locomotive.
