The S16 is a regional railway service of the S-Bahn Zürich on the Zürcher Verkehrsverbund (ZVV), Zürich transportation network, and is one of the network's services providing service within the canton of Zürich.


The service links Zürich Flughafen to the north of Zürich, and Herrliberg-Feldmeilen, on north shore of Lake Zürich to the east of Zürich. The service runs via Zürich Oerlikon, Zürich Hauptbahnhof and Zürich Stadelhofen, and then over the Lake Zürich right-bank railway line to its terminus. At the southern end of the service, the S16 is extended to Meilen in the evenings. The following stations are served:[1][2]

All services are operated by RABe 514 class multiple unit trains.[citation needed]


The normal frequency is one train every 30 minutes. A journey between Zurich Airport and Herrliberg-Feldmeilen takes 34 minutes, with an additional 7 minutes when extended to Meilen.[2]


Prior to a change in late 2015, the S16 extended beyond Zürich Flughafen to Effretikon, with alternate trains extended to Thayngen, in the canton of Schaffhausen, running via Winterthur Hauptbahnhof and Schaffhausen. In 2015, service over this stretch of the route was transferred to the S24 service, and the S16 cut back to the airport.[1][3]
