Frequent public transport users

If you travel frequently by train, bus or tram, your best cost-effective option is the U-Abo season ticket.

Occasional public transport users

If you travel by public transport from time to time, you save 10% when you use a multi-use ticket.

Day tourism and excursions

Returning the same day over more than 4 zones without a Halbtax (Half-Fare) travelcard? Then your best bet is the day-ticket (all day run-around ticket) at CHF 18.70.


Accompanied children 6 and under may travel free of charge.

Children from 7 up to (but not including) their 16th birthday may travel free of charge when accompanied by a parent holding a Junior-Karte (junior card) or with an owner of a Kinder-Mitfahrkarte (accompanied children's card).


Reduced price options are available for groups and school classes of 10 or more. A requirement from all the transport companies is advance pre-registration. Group tickets are available at the larger sales points/stations as well as many TNW ticket machines. Sales offices will be glad to help you plan your trip.

Events (S-Tickets)

The TNW offers a variety of one-off tickets for special events (carnival etc.). Special event tickets are available at TNW ticket machines.
