General terms of business for use of the P+Rail app, mobile tickets and P+Rail facilities ("P+Rail General Terms of business").
These P+Rail General Terms of Business apply to use of the SBB app for P+Rail facilities (abbreviated form: “P+Rail app”) and to the purchase of MobileTickets in order to use P+Rail facilities. They also contain the terms and conditions regarding the on-site use of P+Rail facilities.
You can pay for a parking space by the hour or by the day via the “P+Rail app”. You can purchase an annual or, monthly pass at the ticket counter or, in some instances, via Rail Services.
By making a firm booking via the “P+Rail app”, you are accepting the following terms and conditions.
Using P+Rail services. Additional terms and conditions may apply to individual SBB services and products (e.g. when using a P+Rail facility, the terms and conditions of use displayed in that particular location apply). In the event of any contradiction, the special terms and conditions take precedence.
Changes to the P+Rail General Terms of Business. SBB reserves the right to fully or partly change, supplement or delete the contents of the “P+Rail app” and these P+Rail General Terms of Business at any time as it sees fit. The same right applies to improvements and/or changes to the information and products and services described. When any changes are made to the P+Rail General Terms of Business, you will be asked to read and accept the new General Terms of Business.
The MobileTicket for P+Rail facilities grants you the right to park a duly licensed light motor vehicle (maximum total weight 3500 kg) in roadworthy condition for the period of validity of the MobileTicket at the car park facility in question, provided that a free marked space is available. You are not entitled to a refund if no space is available. No claims for damages or loss of profit due to a fully occupied P+Rail facility will be accepted.
People with a disability may display their cantonal authority’s parking pass for disabled people and are thus exempt from paying the parking fee.
Non-authorised use All forms of use other than the parking of light motor vehicles within marked bays are prohibited, including, in particular:
Parking caravans or motorhomes, vehicles with trailers, bicycles or motor-assisted bicycles
Cleaning and repairing vehicles
Topping up or draining off cooling water, fuel or oil
Storing flammable items and materials, or waste and rubbish
Posting or distributing advertising materials (flyers, business cards etc.) without written permission from SBB
Exclusion of liability Use of the P+Rail facility is at the user’s own risk. This also particularly applies in wintery conditions. Any liability on the part of SBB is excluded to the extent permissible by law.
Infringement of the terms and conditions of use If the vehicle is parked at the P+Rail facility for longer than the parking session paid for or if the parking fee is not paid in advance, a parking fee of CHF 40 per day or part thereof shall be payable. In the event of an infringement of the car park regulations or unauthorised use, a penalty of CHF 40 shall be payable. The right to assert a claim for higher compensation for damages is reserved. SBB reserves the right to have a vehicle towed away at the user’s expense if:
a leaking tank, carburettor, conduit or container or any other defect poses a risk for the operation or cleanliness of the car park,
the vehicle is illegal or is impounded by the police,
a vehicle is parked in a way that contravenes the above terms and conditions of use.
Instructions issued by SBB staff and authorised SBB representatives must be complied with.
Exchanges and refunds. As a general rule, MobileTickets cannot be exchanged or refunded. The following exceptions apply:
Customer illness with suitable evidence. A medical certificate must be provided at SBB’s request
Duplicate E-tickets purchased (travel date, location and passenger – surname, first name and car registration number – are identical)
E-tickets with incorrect car registration numbers (if an obvious error has been made)
If any of these circumstances apply, please send the MobileTicket with a written application (PDF) to the SBB Contact Center or take it to a manned SBB station to request a refund. You can also fill in this form on screen and send it as an e-mail attachment.
Technical requirements. You are personally responsible for ensuring that your mobile phone can support the MobileTicket system and for the technical settings. Technical support services are provided by the relevant provider only.
