No matter where you are going, you should always be able to rely on the sanitary facilities on board. Almost all the old open-construction WCs have been replaced with closed types. More than 97% of WCs in both long-distance and regional services are in operation.
Every day, they are flushed about 135,000 times. After approximately 7,500 flushing pro-cesses, a defect occurs. In three out of four cases, it is rectified by the end of the same day. SBB invests CHF 10 million annually in the maintenance of its closed toilet systems.
