Who we are

Regional Trains Ticino Lombardy

TILO SA is based in Bellinzona and was established in 2004 as a company under Swiss law. SBB (Swiss Federal Railways) and Trenord each hold a share of 50%. Trenord is the Lombardy-based railway company created by the merger of Trenitalia’s Lombardy division and Le Nord. It took on the share capital that had been held by Trenitalia until 2011. The TILO Board of Directors is made up of six members chosen every three years, three of whom are appointed by the Swiss side and three by the Italian side.

The company’s goal is to create efficient connections between the towns in the canton Ticino and nearby Lombardy. TILO has achieved exceptional results in recent years, such as a considerable increase in passengers in comparison with 2004. It prides itself on its punctuality and reliability.

The company management is certified to the international standard ISO 9001. TILO’s modern collective agreement, which was negotiated with the social partners, sets out the conditions of employment. Thanks to the commitment shown by its employees, TILO is the golden standard for train services in the Lombardy region.
