Locarno - According to the revision of the Law on Freight Transport, the Swiss Federal Council and Parliament have instructed the Federal Transport Office (UFT) to guarantee traffic rights (slots) for both passenger and freight traffic. The move will thus make the services offered in both sectors more appealing, also with the aim of ensuring that cargo traffic will not be penalized.

In view of this, in its official 2018 timetable, UFT has authorized a supplementary passenger train along the Basel - Lucerne - Locarno link, from Friday to Monday, leaving the slots reserved in the remainder of the week for freight traffic.
