The S6 is a regional railway service of the S-Bahn Zürich on the Zürcher Verkehrsverbund (ZVV), Zürich transportation network, and is one of the network's services connecting the cantons of Zürich and Aargau.

Route[edit]

The service links Baden, in the canton of Aargau to the west of Zürich, and Uetikon, on north shore of Lake Zürich to the east of Zürich. From Baden it runs via the Furttal railway and Regensdorf-Watt to Zürich Oerlikon, and then serves Zurich Hauptbahnhof and Zürich Stadelhofen before running over the Lake Zürich right-bank railway line to its terminus.[1]

The following stations are served:[1]

Rolling stock[edit]

Scheduling[edit]

The normal frequency over the length of the service is one train every 30 minutes. Between Zürich Oerlikon and Herrliberg-Feldmeilen, the S6 combines with the S16 to provide a frequency of one train every 15 minutes. The eastern end of the service is cut back to Tiefenbrunnen in the evening, whilst on weekdays four trains during the middle of the day start and terminate at Wettingen.[1][2]

A journey over the full length of the service takes 66 or 67 minutes, depending on direction.[1]
