Kloten Balsberg is a railway station in the Swiss canton of Zürich and municipality of Kloten. The station is located on the Zürich–Winterthur railway line and is an interchange point between the Zürich S-Bahn and the Stadtbahn Glattal light rail system. The station is served by S-Bahn line S7, and by Zürich tram routes 10 and 12, operating on behalf of the Stadtbahn Glattal.[1][2][3][4]
Although the S-Bahn station is situated only 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) from the main terminal of Zürich Airport, it was bypassed by the opening, in 1980, of a new line directly serving the Zürich Airport railway station in the basement of that terminal. Since 2008, the Stadtbahn Glattal has provided a new direct route to the airport.[4]
