Swiss train tickets most expensive in Europe

Swiss train tickets are amongst the most expensive in Europe.

A study by the Information Service for Public Transport (LITRA) found that ticket prices have increased by 18% since 2010.

The only other country that is comparable in price rises is Britain.

Despite this, the public transport service remains top in terms of supply, such as the rail network, bus routes and trams in urban and rural areas.

The survey is a follow-up of a 2013 price comparison study.
