The S11 is a regional railway line of the S-Bahn Zürich on the Zürcher Verkehrsverbund (ZVV), Zürich transportation network. The S11 is one of the network's lines connecting the cantons of Zürich and Aargau.[1]

Route[edit]

Line S11 commences at Aarau station, in the canton of Aargau, and follows the Heitersberg railway as far as Dietikon station and the approaches to Zürich Hauptbahnhof station. Passing through the lower level platforms at this station, the line then passes through the Hirschengraben and Zürichberg tunnels, and Stettbach station, before joining the Zürich to Winterthur line.[1][2][3] The S11 follows this line as far as Winterthur Hauptbahnhof station, running non-stop between Stettbach and Winterthur. From Winterthur it runs either over the Tösstalbahn as far as Sennhof-Kyburg, or over the Winterthur to Etzwilen line as far as Seuzach. During rush hour, trains are extended from Sennhof-Kyburg to Wila.[4]

Trains on the S11 usually run every 30 minutes, with a journey time of around 50 to 92 minutes. The alternation of trains to Sennhof-Kyburg and Seuzach provides an hourly service to each terminus. Service from Dietikon to Aarau is half-hourly at peak times and hourly at off-peak times.[4]
