Day Pass

With the Switzerland Day Pass, you enjoy unlimited travel for a day by train, boat, postbus, cableway, funicular, tram and bus routes in most cities and urban areas in Switzerland.

There are different Day Passes for Switzerland: 

  • Day Pass for the Half Fare Travelcard: available for 1st and 2nd class, valid on GA area routes, but not for international travel.
  • Day Pass Children: children and young persons between 6 and 16 years travel accompanied by an adult with a valid ticket. 
  • Day Pass for dogs: when you hold a GA Travelcard, a Half Fare Travelcard or a valid ticket, you can purchase the Day Pass for dogs for CHF 35. It is valid in 1st or 2nd class according to the ticket of the accompanying person.
  • Day Pass Bike: this ticket is valid for SBB, private railways, postbus and other transport companies. The Day Pass Bike is also valid for Zurich Public Transport (VBZ) with the exception of some local bus lines. 

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.
