ZVV yearly and monthly travelcards are available on the SwissPass. In addition to the physical SwissPass card, the SwissPass can also be linked with the ZVV app and is displayed as «SwissPass Mobile» in the app. This means that all services on SwissPass are practically available on your smartphone and can be shown during a ticket inspection.

Sales channels

Travelcards can be purchased or renewed through all sales channels. The easiest and fastest way is directly through the ZVV app or the ZVV ticket shop. With the app you have the advantage of being able to show your travelcard directly in the app with ‘SwissPass Mobile’ and that your travelcard will automatically be taken into account when purchasing zone upgrades. Loading individual tickets and day tickets onto the SwissPass is possible via the ZVV app and the ZVV ticket shop. These channels also offer the option of loading a ticket onto the SwissPass of a third person (e.g. child or elderly person).

For people who are not digitally savvy, the ZVV also offers the option of ordering the ticket by telephone from ZVV-Contact and having it loaded directly onto the SwissPass. With just one call - from a cell phone or landline - the ticket is immediately available on the SwissPass and the person can start their journey straight away. Payment is made on account.
