I have a U-Abo or General Abonnement (GA) and would like to travel to somewhere just over the border in Germany. What do I need?
U-Abo, Halbtax and GA tickets are valid up to the Swiss border, but not to any destinations beyond. U-Abo and GA holders as well as passengers with a ticket which is valid to the border can buy a connecting ticket at ticket machines. This will take them to their destination over the border. For the return journey, passengers will need to buy a ticket in Germany, in Euros, to cover the German section of the journey back to the Swiss border.
An exception to this rule is tram no. 8: On this route, a U-Abo (but not a GA ticket!) is valid between the border and Weil am Rhein Station or Centre.
