Sustainable Mobility in Zurich

On the move with groups in a climate-friendly manner: alternatives for traveling to and getting around in Zurich.

On the Move in a Climate-Friendly Manner

Zurich’s high quality of living is unique. Its first-class mix of mobility options plays a considerable role in this regard. This is firmly anchored in the political strategy of the City of Zurich and encompasses the resource-saving use of energy and the protection of the environment.

Thanks to committed players in the field of mobility, the carbon footprint of group events in Zurich is also reduced.

Zurich Airport

Taking Responsibility For The Environment

Zurich Airport is one of the leading airports in the world in terms of environmental protection. Over the past 25 years, it has reduced its CO2 emissions by approximately 50%. In addition, it aims to gradually reduce CO2 emissions to zero by 2050. Thanks to the airport’s central location in Europe, convention attendees’ flight routes are automatically shortened.

Swiss Federal Railways SBB

The Most Sustainable Option

After bicycles, the train is the most climate-friendly means of transportation in Switzerland. These days, Swiss Federal Railways trains run on 90 percent hydropower. From 2025, SBB trains will be powered by 100% renewable energy sources, making them even more sustainable than ever. And as an extra bonus, visitors can travel from the airport to the center of Zurich by train in just 10 minutes.

Tram and Bus

The most popular means of transportation for Zurich’s inhabitants

The tram and bus services in Zurich stand out in comparison to many other cities thanks to the city’s dense, above-ground transportation network and highly synchronized timetable.

Bicycle

Cheap, Healthy, and Fast

Bicycles often get you to your destination more quickly and cheaply and help you keep fit at the same time. In most of Zurich’s urban quarters, the speed limit is 30 km/h and many main roads have bicycle lanes. A bicycle ride is also a great way of clearing your head before or after a business meeting, as well as of mingling with the locals.

Bicycles, e-bikes, and electric scooters are available for hire at various locations in the city.
