The total costs for transport in Switzerland (by road, rail, air) are surveyed every five years. In 2010 they amounted to CHF 93.5 billion. Of this, CHF 72.8 billion was accounted for by passenger transport and CHF 20.7 billion by goods transport. In addition to expenditure on transport and transport infrastructure, these figures also include the cost of accidents and costs for transport-related damage to the environment and health.
Motorised road transport and rail transport made up the largest transport volumes. For this reason, the costs of these forms of transport are also measured in the years between the main surveys. In 2014 the total costs of motorised road transport were seven times higher than those of rail transport (CHF 75.0 billion compared with CHF 10.5 billion).
