Zones and validity times are printed on all tickets. For as long as your ticket is valid, you can travel as often as you wish on all types of transport in your selected zones. You can check the areas of validity for short-distance tickets and local networks by consulting the tables on ticket machines or asking the drivers of local and regional buses.


Validating tickets

Multiple-journey tickets must be stamped in a machine before travelling.

Juniors with equivalent multiple-journey tickets

Where one field on a multiple-journey ticket is validated at full price, two persons can travel provided they are both eligible for a reduced fare (i.e. children, Half-Fare travelcard holders) and at least three zones are paid for.

City zones

Zurich (zone 110) and Winterthur (zone 120) each count as two zones as the public transport networks in these cities are much more dense than elsewhere.

Short distances

Short-distance trips in the cities of Zurich and Winterthur may involve travel over city boundaries. Areas of validity are shown on the ticket machines.

Local network

A local network covers a municipality (not including the cities of Zurich and Winterthur).

Night supplement

To use the nighttime network you need an additional night supplement (CHF 5).
