Zurich Public transport tickets to travel. Price, where to buy

Zurich Public transport tickets

To use public transport in Zurich, you just need to always buy the same ticket, no matter what you use. Trams, buses, S-Bahns, funiculars and boats all form part of the single integrated system.

The rates vary according to the zones. Generally, to move around the City (ZONE 110) you just need to buy a ticket for 2 zones. It is important to remember, however, that Zones 110 and 120 (Winterthur) are ALWAYS counted as 2 zones. This means that anyone wishing to move from ZONE 121 (where Zurich International Airport is located for example) to ZONE 110, or vice versa, will always have to purchase a ticket for 3 ZONES, although there are actually only two!

Single tickets and carnet are ideal for those who use the vehicles occasionally. A single ticket for 2 zones costs 4.60CHF. It is ideal for getting around the center. It is valid for 60 minutes from the moment of validation. The single 3-zone ticket, ideal for example for getting from the airport to the center, costs 7CHF. It too has a validity of 60′.
