As the Swiss federal carrier of the national railway system, SBB transports over 1.26 million people and 210 000 tons of goods to their destination. In the wider Zurich area, four out of the ten most frequented railway stations of Switzerland are located. The railway infrastructure of Zurich Wipkingen is part of the highly frequented intercity railway network.
