Swiss Travel System – Switzerland by train, bus and boat

Switzerland comprises the densest public transport network in the world. It extends over 27,000 captivating kilometres, linking city centres, tiny tucked away villages, mountain resorts and lakes. Specially for travellers from abroad, the Swiss Travel System offers visitors the opportunity to discover the many diverse delights by road, rail and waterway. And with just a single all-in-one ticket – the Swiss Travel Pass.

Vacation visitors to Switzerland can benefit from the Swiss Travel System the minute they set foot in the country. Comfortable direct connections from neighbouring foreign countries are offered and at frontier railway stations and airports, trains and/or buses are ready and waiting to take passengers to city centres, holiday destinations and even snow-capped summits rising to 3800 metres. Public transport services are planned to perfection. Regular, reliable and coordinated connections are assured, guaranteeing trouble-free travel nationwide. Whether visitors stay for only a few days or for longer duration, a special ticket is available to meet their specific travel requirements.

The complimentary Swiss Family Card permits children aged under 16 to travel free of charge when accompanied by at least one parent.
