TNW (Northwestern Switzerland fare network): Travelling in Northwestern Switzerland.
Whether you need a day pass or multiple-journey ticket, a individual ticket, group ticket or travelcard – TNW has a suitable product for every travel requirement.
The six most important transport companies in the Northwestern Switzerland region (the cantons of Basel-Stadt and Basel-Landschaft, Fricktal, Schwarzbubenland and the local authority, Ederswiler JU) are combined under TNW. The same simple fare system applies across the entire TNW network area. For city or country you require one ticket only.
The zone system applies for all tickets within the entire TNW 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 tram – all types of public transport are included in the price of the zones you have paid for within the period of validity.
U-Abo travelcards are valid in the entire TNW area without any time limit.
You can buy TNW tickets at any SBB ticket counter in the network area, on the touch-screen ticket machines, on SBB.ch or via SBB Mobile. Please contact the SBB Contact Center Helpdesk on 0848 44 66 88 (CHF 0.08/min.), should you have any questions.
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 day passes.
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.
