Thrifty use of public funds
With approximately 2,400 vehicles, we’re active in regional passenger transport on behalf of the cantons as purchasers of our services. This is half-financed by the public sector, which makes efficient use of public resources a major consideration for us. On-demand services are one example of how we’re innovatively developing public transportation in the spirit of efficiency. Being able to push ahead and finance innovations takes partnerships and suitable, cross-sector funding opportunities. We also ensure that we work as efficiently as possible in our internal processes. To this end, we look for new opportunities for internal cooperation and are continually adjusting processes in an innovative way.
What’s it all about?
The Innovation team is supported by 15 PostBus employees acting as Innoscouts. Innoscouts are dedicated employees from various regions, functions and hierarchical levels who support the Innovation team’s activities and projects using their experience and knowledge, while also providing valuable feedback for ongoing projects.

Goals of the project
Collaboration with the Innoscouts is intended to help the Innovation team take the various perspectives of PostBus staff into account and better understand the needs of the PostBus regions. The Innoscouts are actively incorporated into projects and contribute to the further development of public transport. They also represent the innovation projects vis-à-vis the other employees and share their opinions and views with the Innovation team.
Innoscouts are incorporated into current projects and activities. Collaboration is continually scrutinized and adapted.
