In the Dosto is available in the 1. Class comfort

The theme is a perennial favorite: The SBB , and their relationship to the 1 is.--Class Passengers. How comfortable the first class must be compartment, for the use of the travelers a surcharge of up to 70 percent compared to the price of 2. Class paid?

the railway is company, and, if necessary, of the purchaser of railway services, for example, the Zürcher Verkehrsverbund (ZVV). The first-class travellers have to arrange with the result. And the Trouble is programmed. This forces the train, finally, to take later, once again, money in Hand and the cart material back more in the direction of the customer's idea to rebuild.

Designer Swiss

the Latest example: The double-deck trains Regio Dosto built by Stadler. As the SBB has ordered over ten years ago, the compositions for use in the zürich S-Bahn network, with the voice of the ZVV. The transport Association Verkehrsverbund pulled out a seat designer of the Swiss, which is rather amazing, but their work on the same area more and more passengers into squeeze. Result: Instead of the 2+1 Seating and were equipped with the first-class compartments in the second class with 2+2 Seating. For the ZVV is a 2+1 Seating would not have been eligible because they did not want to change the S-Bahn Standard.

Although already became apparent in the order that the SBB would use the Regio Dosto, even on remote routes instead of the SBB on the 2+1 Seating, although at the time an Option on this seat Assembly had passed.

As of the Regio Dosto in long-distance traffic as an inter-Regio-replacement was used, did not wait for the displeasure of the customers Who drove from Zurich to Chur, or to call from Basel to Zürich-airport, just two of the affected routes, had to make do with uncomfortable chairs in the Aft instead of the more comfortable six-seat compartments. The Protest of the first-class passengers was so clear that the SBB survey made in mid-2014 on two routes a customer – ultimately, only, to find out what you could really always know: only the rice class at the end of the long-distance transport, want to have absolutely no same Seating as in the second class. They felt in their distrust of the train operator confirmed that the comfort seems to be declining more and more, while the prices would rise.

Four years after the survey, the SBB announced this October that 43 Regio Dosto were converted to inter-Regio Dosto. To rethink also the renewal of the long-distance transport concession has been run by the Federal office of traffic, nearly two years ago. The SBB have been recalled as the product range of the "remote traffic" should look like. And so it now returns 1. Class back to the 2+1 Seating. The seat will be the same as in the past, but the armrests are to be widened and covered with leather. Moreover, the 1 is.-Class range a between deck expanded and a separate entrance created. A partition wall to the staircase in the between deck to ensure more peace and quiet. The rather high noise level was the close Seating of the frequent criticisms of the web customer.

cost of 20 million

this Will appease the critics? Edwin Dutler of the customers of public passenger TRANSPORT Per train may donate the Changes to no great applause. In the case of the SBB the currency cal "only as much as absolutely necessary and as little as possible". He criticises the fact that, for the S-Bahn-designed and non-adjustable seats would not be replaced. He also calls for the doors between the two classes. "Of the SBB, planned expansion standard in the 1. Class does not justify a surcharge of 70 per cent compared to the price of 2. Class," explains Dutler. He refers to the same Stadler-train, which operates in Luxembourg as a Regio Express with reclining leather seats and compartment doors.

In the Dosto, run on the ZVV network, the eight compartments in the 1. Class not be changed because this would be contrary to the S-Bahn Standard. The transport Association fears that the appreciation of the Seating capacity in the peak hours would be lost.

The entire renovation of the 43 double-Decker trains will cost around 20 million Swiss francs. In this cost framework, the equipment of all the seats in the 2 is included, however. Class with power ports. On the overdue adjustment of the Dosto in the inter-Regio transport, customers must wait, however, for a long time. The first vehicle is rebuilt according to the SBB timetable in the second half of 2019 in the SBB works in Olten, the last to be refreshed by the end of 2023. The conversion per composition will last for five weeks. Whether or not the schedule for all 43 trains can be observed is also dependent on the commissioning of the long-distance double-Decker trains from Bombardier, as the SBB to explain on request. And there is a catch: Their use since the timetable change on inter-regional lines between Chur, St. Gallen, Zurich, and Basel is currently drawn by breakdowns, failures and delays.
