The SBB Ticket Machine.
Quick access to tickets and other services around the clock – at every SBB railway station and from many other transport companies.
Almost the entire range of public transport is available. Other additional services are also available, from trade fair and leisure travel offers to credit for your pre-paid mobile phone.
Change given up to 100 francs – also in bank notes.
The new SBB ticket machines have been available for use all over Switzerland since August 2015. Innovative technology makes payment with these machines easier:
- Contactless, faster payment with the Postfinance-Card and the American-Express, Mastercard PayPass and VISA payWave credit cards
- Change given up to 100 francs – also in bank notes
- Payment with large notes – max. 200 francs/euros possible
Please note - change for bank notes is issued from a separate output slot on the bottom right of the ticket machine. Wait until the ticket has been issued and do not forget your change.
New: display your SwissPass information.
It's quick and easy to check the validity of your Half-Fare or GA travelcard on your SwissPass. Activate the scanner at the new ticket machine and follow the instructions. Entering your postal code will retrieve your SwissPass information and display it on the machine. The older machines will be equipped with this functionality over the course of 2016.
Ticket machine helpline 0800 11 44 77.
Do you require assistance with operating a ticket machine? Call the free telephone number 0800 11 44 77 and the SBB Contact Center will help you. The helpline is available around the clock, every day to answer your questions about our range of products or how to operate the ticket machine.

You can also call the same number to inform us if the ticket machine is defective. In this case, please indicate the eight-digit machine ID number, which you can find on the home screen.
Course offer: be & remain mobile.
The course is aimed at people who avoid ticket machines, who have difficulty navigating around a train station, who feel insecure on the streets etc. etc. etc... or people who are interested and curious - particularly those over 50 years of age. So these people too can be independent and autonomous for as long as possible.
