The Cantonal Fund for prefessional training pays 40% of the public transport costs of apprentices with in-company apprenticeship contract.
Each apprentice is sent a letter with a voucer (Rail Check) which entitles them to a 40% discount on the cost of an annual Arcobaleno "Appresfondo" pass (for apprentices subsidised by the fund)..
In principle "Appresfondo" is a 2nd class pass. However, on request, a 1st class pass can also be issued, but in this case the pass holder is directly responsible for paying the difference in cost.
"Appresfondo" passes can be obtained at the SBB sales points, PostBus, TPL and FART stations, by handing the Rail Check over at the counter.
