The cantonal vocational training fund assumes 40% of the travel costs on public transport within the Arcobaleno integrated fare network for apprentices with a training contract.
The apprentice is sent a voucher in the form of a Rail Check by post. When purchasing an Appresfondo annual travelcard from Arcobaleno, they thereby receive a reduction of 40% (for apprentices who are supported by the vocational training fund). The Rail Check is issued to the apprentice after the training contract is approved. The Appresfondo annual travelcard is only intended for apprentices employed in the canton of Ticino.
