If you travel frequently by train, bus or tram, your best cost-effective option is the U-Abo season ticket.
The U-Abo Freizeit is ideal for customers who mainly travel by public transport in the evenings and at weekends, whether on their way home from work or on their way out. You can also make your excursions on weekends in a relaxed manner by public transport without having to look for a parking space.
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, U-Abo Freizeit or GA Travelcard). 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. 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.
The TNW offers a variety of one-off tickets for special events (carnival etc.). Special event tickets are available at TNW ticket machines.
U-Abo owners now benefit from additional exclusive discounts.
You can find your personal voucher offers in the "Home of U-Abo" at u-abo.ch; create your personal login or if you already have one, you can simply log in. The voucher portal is constantly updated. A regular visit is worthwhile, especially since the offers are limited in time and quantity.
