Other (financial) information provided by the organisation:

The International Rail Transport Committee (CIT) is an association of some 200 railway undertakings and shipping companies which provide international passenger and/or freight services. 130 organisations are members in their own right, 80 organisations are linked indirectly by being members of CIT associate members. The CIT is an association under Swiss law (Article 60 et seq. ZGB [Swiss Code of Civil Law]) and is based in Bern.

The association’s costs are paid by members, each member paying a subscription which is proportional to the level of his international passenger and/or freight traffic. Each full member of the CIT has one vote, and voting rights are therefore independent of the amount paid as a subscription.
