Zone system

The zone system applies for all tickets within the entire Passepartout 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 or ship (selected ship routes only and only for travelcards) – all types of public transport are included in the price of the zones you have paid for within the period of validity.

Travel everywhere with the Half-Fare travelcard

If you hold a Half-Fare travelcard, you benefit from reduced prices for all individual or group tickets, 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.
