Arcobaleno passes on the SwissPass.

The SwissPass gives you access to public transport and many of our partners’ services. You can use it for your travelcards, to open your Mobility vehicle or to access ski resorts. With the SwissPass, you can also benefit from numerous special offers.

What is the SwissPass?

It is a plastic card with an electronic RFID chip on which a number is stored that can be used to verify your travelcard. There is no indication printed on the card regarding the purchased ticket (type of travelcard and validity date). RFID technology allows ticket inspectors to see all the necessary information on their device.

Red plastic card, which is equipped with RFID chips so that the subscription can be scanned and verified.

What changes for me as an employee?

The SwissPass will be sent to the employee’s private address and no longer to the company. 

In addition to other public transport tickets, the SwissPass allows access to additional services provided by SwissPass partners. Several services can therefore be linked to the same card. Since these are not directly visible on the card, there is a warning and reminder system. To ensure correct communication between service provider and service users, the addresses stored in the database must match the actual addresses of the users.
