The indicator "travelling time to centres with public transport" describes the time taken to travel from a municipality to the next centre using public transport. "Travelling time to centres" is a measure of the accessibility of centres using transport and a means of visualising the disparities between all Swiss municipalities. For a municipality in the countryside, this may be the travelling time to the nearest isolated city, to the centre of the nearest small, medium-sized or large agglomeration or also to one of the nearest major cities: Basel, Bern, Geneva, Lausanne, Lugarno or Zurich. In addition, depending on the choice of centre, it is possible to visualise small-scale disparities in accessibility by transport and the structure of the centres in Switzerland.
