If you travel frequently by train, bus or tram, your best cost-effective option is the U-Abo season ticket.
If you travel by public transport from time to time, you save 10% when you use a multi-use ticket.
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.
With the Junior Travelcard/Children's Co-Travelcard (Junior-Karte/Kinder-Mitfahrkarte), children between the ages of 6 and 16 travel free of charge when accompanied by a parent with a Junior Travelcard or by the holder of the Children's Co-Travelcard. The adult must have a valid ticket (TNW Single Ticket, Multi-Ride Card, Day Pass, U-Abo or GA). The Junior Travelcard/Children's Co-Travelcard can be purchased at SBB ticket counters and costs CHF 30 per child (please bring your child's passport or an official photographic ID).
Children up to the age of 6 can travel free of charge if they are accompanied by a person with a valid ticket. If they travel unaccompanied, they must pay the reduced fare.
An accompanying person can take a maximum of eight children up to the age of 6 free of charge. The accompanying person must accept responsibility for children in their care and be at least 12 years old for a maximum of four children and at least 16 years old for a maximum of eight children. The reduced price must be paid for children from the age of 6 to the age of 16.
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.
