Tickets

An Arcobaleno ticket is the ideal solution for all those who travel in Ticino and the Moesano region, for moving around within specific zones using different modes of transport.

Tickets

The integrated fare is now applied to Arcobaleno tickets too. The range includes single tickets as well as multiple-journey tickets and Multiple Day Passes, which save you time and money.

The tickets are differentiated by full price and reduced price. The reduced price applies for children from 6 years (from their 6th birthday) up to their 16th birthday, for holders of an SBB Half Fare Travelcard and for pets. 

Zone and time system

To make it easier to use public transport, the Arcobaleno integrated fare network utilises a zone and time system. This means that all modes of transport such as buses, trains, boats and funiculars can be used within the selected zones and validity period of the ticket. There are no time restrictions for weekly, monthly and annual travelcards.

Futher information

Arcobaleno tickets marked with a star in the following list must be validated at a machine before starting the journey if they are purchased in advance. Should this not be possible, the holder of the ticket must make a handwritten note on the ticket: 

 

  • Single ticket* 
  • Multiple-journey ticket* 
  • Day Pass* 
  • Multiple Day Pass
  • Group ticket
  • Zone upgrade* 
  • Class upgrade* 
  • Multiple class upgrade* 

 

At stations or stops at which there is no validation machine or where this is out of order, travellers must write the date of validity on the ticket by hand using a ballpoint pen. The date must be entered in the first free field from bottom to top. A ticket completed by hand cannot be validated at machines.

Where and how to buy

The weekly travelcard can be purchased at sales counters or directly on regional buses
