On 14th March, the cantonal parliament agreed to subsidise ZVV (Zürcher Verkehrsverbund - the body responsible for all public transport in the canton) with 650.5 million Franks for 2005 (320.5) and 2006 (330). The 2004 deficit was 303.5 million. The higher spending is necessary to cover upcoming investments and service improvements (including Stadtbahn Glattal).

On 15th March, Mercer Institute, a London-based HR consultancy, announced the results of their annual survey in search of the world's most liveable cities. Zürich has scored position one several times — and did so again this year — jointly with Geneva (106.5 points). 39 criteria are considered in the evaluation, including criminality, health-care, gastronomy, entertainment — and transport. The reference city is New York (100 points). The survey is considered to have influence on the location decisions of companies wishing to offer their employees attractive conditions.
