Check-in ticket

Check in – ride – check out – that’s it! With the ZVV ticket app’s check-in feature, you always have the right ticket, throughout Switzerland, for your spontaneous travel plans.

No more need to study zone maps: with the check-in feature, you’ll always have the right ticket. All you have to do is check in on the app before boarding and then check out after your journey. Your travel route will be recorded via GPS. At the end of the day, you’ll be charged the correct price for all your journeys.

Also practical for travelcard holders

Check-in tickets aren’t just attractive for occasional travellers; the feature also takes into account travelcards on the SwissPass. All you have to do is link your SwissPass in the app once. The app then automatically validates the correct connection tickets when leaving the travelcard zone and/or automatically applies the half-fare card.
