An A-Welle season pass can be bought at a reduced rate for U-Abo holders (required for travel within the TNW area).
Note: In order to take advantage of the combined cross-region A-Welle and TNW subscription, ticket holders must travel using connecting services which stop at the frontier stop connecting the respective zones.
Jura (VagABOnd) ticket holders can also obtain an Inter VagABOnd-TNW season ticket until the end of Q1 2017 (in Q2 2017 it will be succeeded by the Modular travelcard, only available at SBB sales outlets). This allows travel throughout the TNW area on the route Délemont - Laufen and in zones 10-14 in the Jura.
Currently only one-month subscriptions are available. Season tickets are issued in the name of the holder and are not transferable. Also required is a validity pass (available at any TNW office). Note that a passport photo must be supplied when making an application. Alternatively, a Rail-Card, half-price card (Halbtaxabo) in credit card format or identity card can also serve as a validity pass.
Annual subscriptions are priced at 10 times the monthly fee, meaning that subscription holders can travel free for two months of the year.
From Q2 2017, the Inter Abo VagABOnd-TNW will be replaced by the Modul-Abo season ticket. In future, commuters travelling between Delemont and Basel will need to purchase a Modul-Abo zone-to-zone ticket. This comprises, for example, the VagABOnd Zone 10 for Delemont (additional zones are available), the Delemont-Basel route and all TNW zones (U-Abo). The Modul-Abo season ticket is available from the SBB (and not from the BVB or BLT).

What is the Modul-Abo?
The Modul-Abo is a season ticket for commuters who travel between two tariff networks, or beyond a tariff network, and who also want to use local transport. With the Modul-Abo season ticket, the existing facility for direct routes (route subscriptions) is linked to allied zones (joint subscription) and merged into a single ticket. The module subscription is only available in conjunction with a SwissPass and can be bought anywhere in Switzerland from March 23, 2017.
The Modul-Abo replaces the existing cross-zone season ticket, and in addition offers flexible combinations of both routes and zones.
The tariff regulations for Modul-Abo are described in T657, in turn derived from the T650 (route subscription), the T651.0 (TNW network tariff) and the T651.X, an optional tariff network addition.
