The GA Travelcard area of validity: where your GA Travelcard is valid.

As a general principle, it’s true that the GA Travelcard enables you to hop on and off public transport with ease. But there are some exceptions. Exactly where you can travel for free with your GA Travelcard and where you have to pay a surcharge is determined by the GA Travelcard area of validity.

You can find an overview of the GA Travelcard area of validity as a PDF. The names of the transport companies that allow you to travel free of charge with a GA Travelcard and the services for which you have to pay a surcharge are listed there on one page. On the other page, there is a map of Switzerland that shows the relevant public transport lines.

How can I quickly find out whether my GA Travelcard is valid?

If you open the PDF, you can conduct a search by clicking on the Ctrl+F keys and entering the relevant search term.
