The S9 is a regional railway line of the S-Bahn Zürich on the Zürcher Verkehrsverbund (ZVV), Zürich transportation network, and is one of the network's lines connecting the cantons of Zürich and Schaffhausen in Switzerland. Between the two Swiss cantons, the line also serves two stations in Germany.

Route[edit]

The line runs from Schaffhausen, capital of the canton of Schaffhausen to Zurich Hauptbahnhof, before continuing via Zürich Stadelhofen to Uster. The following stations are served:[1][2]

Rolling stock[edit]

All services are operated by Re 450 class locomotives pushing or pulling double-deck passenger carriages.[citation needed]

Scheduling[edit]

Between Uster and Rafz, trains run every 30 minutes throughout the day. At peak periods all trains continue from Rafz to Schaffhausen, but at other times alternate trains terminate at Rafz. The journey time from Uster to Schaffhausen takes 82 minutes.[2]

History[edit]

Prior to the timetable revision of late 2015, the section of the S9 between Zürich and Uster operated much as today. However west of Zürich, the trains operated to Zug via Affoltern am Albis. The sections of line no longer covered by the S9 are now served by the S5.[3][1]
