The Glattalbahn is a new rail service linking downtown Zurich with the airport via the Glattal communities. The Glattalbahn project consists of 12.7 km of new double track light rail track and 20 stations. The city of Zurich's public transport company (VBZ) operates this service under contract to the VBG. It operates as an extension of Zurich's tram #10 under the new name 'Glattalbahn tram #10' for the whole line.
The striking architecture of the lightrail stops is a part of the overall plan with regard to urban development. The railway stops designed by the architect Kai Flender follow a modular construction system with installation kits for technical equipment. The standard materials are special powder-coated steel (anti-graffiti), aluminium as well as ESG/VSG glass with special silk-screen. The railway stops are multi-functionally fitted with integrated loudspeakers, light boxes, information boxes, special lights, waste bins and ticket machines.
