Arcobaleno: Travelling in Ticino and Moesano.

Well connected: Switzerland’s fare networks.

Twelve transport companies in the canton of Ticino as well as in the Misox and Calancatal (Moesano) regions are combined in the fare network Arcobaleno. The same simple fare system applies across the entire network area. So you can now cover all your travels on public transport with one single ticket.

Whether you need a 1-day travelpass or a multiple journey ticket, a single ticket or a travelcard – the fare network Arcobaleno has the right product for all your mobility needs.

Zone system

Zone plan: click to enlarge.

The zone system applies for all tickets in the entire Arcobaleno network area. The zone plan shows you how many adjoining zones (areas) you must pay for to go from A to B.

Irrespective of whether you are travelling by train, bus, ship (on selected ship routes and for travel cards only) or funicular – all types of public transport are included in the price of the zones you have paid for within the period of validity.


How to buy your Arcobaleno ticket.

You can buy Arcobaleno tickets at any SBB ticket counter in the network area, from ticket machines, at the SBB Ticket Shop or with your SBB Mobile. Please contact the Rail Service Helpdesk on 0900 300 300 (CHF 1.19/min. from the Swiss fixed-line network), should you have any questions.


Travel anywhere with a Half-Fare travelcard.

If you have a Half-Fare travelcard you’ll benefit from reduced prices on individual- and group tickets as well as on multiple journey tickets and 1-day travelpasses.

Outside the network area.

For journeys beyond the borders of the network, network tickets are only valid up to the last timetabled stop within the zones purchased.
The network tickets are not valid in SBB trains that do not stop in the zones paid for.

Nighttime network

With the night trains of the regional network TILO, you can travel at night from Friday into Saturday and from Saturday into Sunday until the early hours of the morning in the Ticino.
To use the TILO night service, all you need is a valid ticket (standard ticket, Arcobaleno regional travelcard, GA travelcard, etc.). You do not need to pay a night supplement.
