Company profile

The Felsenegg cable car has been operated by the Sihltal Zurich Uetliberg (SZU) Rail on behalf of the owners since its opening in 1954. It is the only federally licensed cable car in the canton of Zurich and primarily transports tourists and other visitors to one of the most beautiful vantage points on the Albis chain: the Felsenegg.


The LAF has been part of the Zurich transport network (ZVV) since 1990. It thus provides its services as a mode of public transport for the canton of Zurich and is reimbursed by the latter for its expenses.
