The S5 is a regional railway service of the S-Bahn Zürich on the Zürcher Verkehrsverbund (ZVV), Zürich transportation network. The S5 is one of the network's services connecting the cantons of Zürich, St. Gallen, Schwyz and Zug.


Service S5 links the city of Zug and Pfäffikon SZ, on the south shore of Lake Zürich in the canton of Schwyz, running via Zürich Hauptbahnhof and Zürich Stadelhofen The following stations are served:[1][2]

Rolling stock[edit]

All services are operated by RABe 514 class units on weekdays, and RABe 511 units on weekends.[citation needed]


The S5 has a normal frequency of one train every 30 minutes. The through journey time is just over one hour 30 minutes.[2]


Prior to the timetable revision of late 2015, the section of the S5 between Zürich and Pfäffikon operated much as today. However west of Zürich, the trains operated to Oberglatt, where alternate trains continued to either Niederweningen or Rafz. The core of the line ran to a frequency of every half hour, thus providing hourly services to Niederweningen and Rafz. The section between Oberglatt and Niederweningen was also served by an hourly shuttle service numbered S55, that connecting at Oberglatt with the S5 trains that run to and from Rafz.[3]

The sections of line no longer covered by the S5 and S55 are now served by the S9 (to Rafz) and S15 (to Niederweningen).[1]
