The TNW Night Network

The TNW Night Network

On until dawn

Night owls can leave their cars at home: The tariff association Tarifverbund Nordwestschweiz offers attractive connections on weekend nights (Fri./Sat. and Sat./Sun.). With trams, buses and trains, you can travel throughout the region cheaply and safely. Check your connection in the online timetable before departure. The night network can be used with a normal ticket or with the U-Abo Subscription without surcharge.

Public holiday services

The TNW Night Network also operates during Fasnacht, on Maundy Thursday, on 30th April, on the Wednesday before Ascension Day, on 31st July (Swiss National Day on the Rhine) and on New Year's Eve. Before the above-mentioned public holidays with Night Network operation, the daytime lines also run one hour longer, analogous to the weekend. The special timetables of the TNW apply. There is no night service on 24/25 and 25/26 December, even if these days fall on a weekend.
