Java.

  • As of 9 December 2012, we no longer support SBB Mobile Business for mobile phones with Java (e.g. BlackBerry or Nokia N8). Among other things, this means that current timetable information and updates are no longer available.
  • An alternative is to use the mobile timetable (m.sbb.ch) and SBB Ticket Shop Business online at sbb.ch/business.

Thank you for your understanding.

Real-time timetable.

All the information you need, even when you’re on the move: up-to-date arrival and departure times, platform alterations, etc. are available in real time throughout your journey.

Correct to the address.

You can create your route enquiries using an extendable adaptive favourites list that recognises individual addresses and points of interest as well as stations (approx. 28’000) and stops (approx 6’000).

Map support.

Are you unfamiliar with your departure point or destination? Find your current position and the nearest station or stop using Google Maps and then transfer this to your route enquiry. Or use the “Take me Home” function: SBB Mobile can get you home from any point in Switzerland in the best possible way using GPS support.

Ticket options.

  • Purchase and display tickets on your smartphone or tablet.
  • Purchase via the timetable.
  • Purchase by entering your departure and destination stations.

Under “Favourites”, you can easily place a repeat order for tickets you have already purchased. You can display your tickets via the menu item “Tickets”, “Display ticket”.
Tip: To retrieve your ticket even more quickly, open the programme, shake your smartphone and your most recent ticket will be displayed straight away.

Please note:

  • If you are not returning on the same day, please buy a single ticket for each day of your journey.
  • You must buy your MobileTicket before the scheduled departure time of your chosen mode of transport.
  • When your ticket is checked, you must show the member of staff a valid official form of identification in the name of the person travelling in addition to your MobileTicket. If you hold a Half-Fare or GA travelcard, it is sufficient to present your travelcard.

Expenses receipts.

As a business customer, you will find the app particularly useful. You can buy your tickets on the move at any time up to shortly before you depart and need not worry afterwards about your expenses receipts as the tickets you buy will be automatically billed to your account and the accounts department linked to it. The manager of your company’s accounts department can retrieve a detailed statement from SBB Businessmanager every 14 days.

If you still need a physical receipt, you can download this from SBB Ticket Shop Business. Once you have logged in, choose the function “My account” and then “My orders”. Here you can find all the tickets you have purchased, including MobileTickets. Simply select the MobileTicket you are looking for and click on the “Expenses receipt” link.

Ticket for accompanying passengers.

“Ticket for accompanying passengers” offers the option of purchasing the same ticket for a maximum of 8 additional passengers travelling with you. The class and destinations cannot be changed. Please note: When buying tickets for accompanying passengers, you must travel together for the outward and return journeys.
