TicketsThe right and valid ticket to your destination
Tickets for one-way and return journeys
Tickets for one-way and return journeys are valid for the selected route and are obtainable at PostBus sales points, ticket machines as well as from your PostBus driver. One-way tickets are valid for a single day and return tickets, according to distances, for 1 day or 10 days.
Multiple Journey Cards
Multiple Journey Cards are ideal if you often travel the same route. The cards are not personalised and can be used by others, including several people travelling together. Multiple Journey Cards are valid for a period of 3 years and are obtainable at PostBus sales points or alternatively, from your PostBus driver.
Route passes are the most advantageous transport ticket for those travelling daily to either work or school. The route pass entitles the holder to an unlimited number of journeys on the chosen route, but is personal and cannot be used by others. This kind of subscription is obtainable from PostBus sales points, in some cases from your PostBus driver, and purchasable for a time span of 1 week, 1 month or a whole year.
In many regions PostBus is a partner company of a Transport Association. Regional travelcards are thus recognised by PostBus, and purchasable at many PostBus sales points and railway station ticket desks – for validity periods of 1 week, 1 month or a whole year. In many places, these are also available as day passes.
GA travelcards entitle the holder to unlimited trips on most PostBus routes, as on the majority of Swiss rail and boat routes. The GA travelcard is solely for personal use, valid for 1 year and purchasable at selected PostBus sales points as well as at railway ticket desks.
Half-fare travelcards are available for purchase for periods of 1, 2 or 3 years. The following tickets are obtainable with the half-fare travelcard at half the normal price:
- One-way tickets
- Return tickets
- Round-trip tickets
In addition, reductions on the price of group travel or Multiple Journey Cards are made on presenting a half-fare travelcard.
Day passes in connection with a half-fare travelcard
Day passes purchased with a half-fare travelcard are not personal and, together with a valid half-fare travelcard, entitle the holder to an unlimited number of trips with PostBus as well as many other Swiss transport companies on the selected day.
