120 years of travel
The mission of the Montreux Oberland Bernois Railway Company (MOB) is not simply to move clients from one place to another. It is to help them travel, dream and discover some of the most beautiful panoramas in the country. It is to arouse their emotions all along the line. A key player in public transport and tourism and an internationally renowned company, MOB aims, with hard work and professionalism, to offer high-quality services to its customers. The pioneering spirit that characterized MOB in its early days is still alive and well. Its flagship project, a train line with a direct link between Montreux and Interlaken thanks to a revolutionary variable gauge bogie, is part of this daily quest for innovation and excellence.
