Zone upgrade

If you decide to take a longer trip than usual, a zone upgrade allows you travel in zones outside the validity area of your ticket or travelcard.

If you plan to travel beyond the validity area of your ticket or travelcard, you can purchase a zone upgrade for the additional zones. Zone upgrades are available as short-duration tickets and day passes. These tickets can also be purchased at the counter in advance (single ticket that requires stamping).

Notes

All zones

Where your ZVV ticket plus zone upgrade covers eight zones in total, you are entitled to unlimited travel across the entire ZVV network.

Night supplement

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

9 O’Clock City Pass

A 9 O’Clock Pass for Zurich or Winterthur (city and agglomeration in both cases) together with a zone upgrade for four zones entitles the holder to unlimited travel across the ZVV network.

City zones

Fare zones 110 (city of Zurich) and 120 (city of Winterthur) count double where prices are calculated.
