«Tickets», the new app for the TNW Network.

August 26 saw a new milestone in the TNW calendar with the launch of «Tickets», the first Smartphone app geared specifically to meet the needs of the Swiss tariff associations. Access to public transport is now a «walk in the park», thanks to the app’s simplicity and intuitive operation.

The app is available for iOS and Android devices and is a free download from the Apple App Store or Google Play.

A million more passengers

The number of passengers carried by BLT In 2013 totalled 52 million. This record figure represents an increase of 1 million or 1.9% more than the previous year. 2013 will go down as a year when the BLT made a number of key decisions. First on the list was a major order for the second phase of Tango trams: 19 in all. Two more milestones came in the form of a restructuring of the BLT pension fund and creating the organisation needed to further develop the travel association covering north-west Switzerland (Tarifverbund Nordwest­schweiz: TNW). Finally, a decision was taken concerning which company will operate the Margarethen­stich part of the route 17 tramline: the BLT.

New bus and tram stops for BVB and BLT

In many ways, bus and tram stops are the public face of a transport company. As such, they need to be clean, bright, easily accessible and well labelled. Much of the architecture and colour of today’s bus and tram stops has remained largely unchanged from original designs laid down some 40 years ago. So, it’s not surprising that they are looking the age just a bit. In the future, thanks to a single, new design developed jointly by the BVB and BLT, pick-up and drop-off points will all have the same look and feel, with timetables all sharing a common format.


Central to the design of the new stops will be their all-new info-stations, each 3.3 metres high and 40 centimetres wide. These stations are displayed on posts on all tram and bus stops in Basel-Stadt. Where space is limited at stops operated by Basel-Land Transport, information will be placed on panels instead of posts. Transport schedules will be displayed at each of the stations, together with maps of the TNW network and the local area. Care has been taken to ensure that the design fulfils the typeface requirements of the Equality for the Disabled Act (BehiG).


The new design tram/bus stops were first piloted in Claraplatz (BVB) and Landererstrasse, Reinach (BLT) in early April. Work on upgrading other stops will continue throughout the year, with a region-wide roll-out planned for 2015.

Fiscal year 2012: passing the 50 million barrier

The number of passengers carried by BLT In 2012 totalled 51 million. This record figure represents an increase of 2.2 million or 4.5% more than the previous year. The reasons behind this above-average boost in passenger numbers are two-fold: the increased frequency of tram numbers 10 and 17, and the extension of the 64 bus route.
