Public transport

Public transportation in Switzerland is generally considered to be good – you can get almost everywhere in the country without a car. What's more, trains and buses generally run on time.

Tickets are usually expensive. Depending on your needs, you might want to buy one of the following passes, which are all issued by the SBB. You can get them at most railway stations.

This Seven25 Travelcard (add-on to the Half-Fare travelcard) allows you to travel for free after 7 pm. You can only buy this pass if you are between 15 and 25 (you have to buy it for a full year). With Track 7 you can travel very inexpensively, if you time your trips accordingly.



Private transport

In the city as well as in the countryside, cycle paths are part of the landscape. Many Swiss people cycle to work. You can also take your bike with you on certain trains and PostBus.
