Coronavirus: with a protection concept step by step back to the regular timetable

The public transport services in the ZVV were reduced due to the extraordinary situation at the end of March. Since 11 May 2020, the regular timetable has been largely restored. The ZVV online timetable has been updated. A protection concept has been developed for the use of public transport.

As a result of the gradual opening of shops, schools, restaurants and other institutions, the system leaders SBB and Postauto have developed a protection concept for public transport together with the Federal Offices of Transport (FOT) and Health (FOPH). This concept is primarily based on the personal responsibility and solidarity of passengers.

Recommendations for passengers

  • Passengers are strongly recommended to wear hygiene masks if the two metre distance cannot be maintained.
  • If possible, avoid morning and evening commuting times and use less busy connections instead.
  • Distribute yourself as well as possible at stops and in vehicles. Keep a distance when getting on and off. It is recommended to form an alley and leaving space for the people getting off.
  • Persons at particular risk should continue to avoid public transport as far as possible.
