Route 12 and the Swiss Transit Lab

Die Linie 12 ist ein durchgängiges Mobilitätskonzept (Mobility-as-a-Service) mit geplantem First- und Last-Mile-Konzept. Sie unterscheidet sich von anderen Pilotprojekten dadurch, dass sie in das bestehende ÖV-Liniennetz des Kantons Schaffhausen eingebunden ist und somit die existierende Infrastruktur benutzt.

Zum ersten Mal vereinigen sich Technologieunternehmen, Betreiber und Kanton als Projektbeteiligte und entwickeln die Linie 12 zusammen mit der Bevölkerung. Das Projekt wird von einer Akzeptanzstudie der ETH begleitet und bezweckt die Integration von Bedenken und Wünschen aus der Bevölkerung.

A driverless bus to the Rhine Falls

The future of driverless public transport is dawning in Schaffhausen. A driverless bus service, which is fully integrated into the local transport schedule, has been on trial in Neuhausen am Rheinfall, site of the famous Rhine Falls, since March 2018.

The Route

Since March 2018, the shuttle service has been operating on a route which connects Industrieplatz with the town centre of Neuhausen am Rheinfall (shown in red).

Soon, the route will be extended to take passengers to and from the Rhine Falls Basin (Restaurant Schlössli Wörth), shown in purple and bus stops highlighted in red.
