The travelcard for night owls
Are you under 25 and often out and about after 7.00 p.m.? If so, the GA Night is the right choice for you. With the GA Night, you enjoy free travel within the GA range of validity each day from 7.00 p.m. until 5.00 a.m. and on Saturdays and Sundays until 7.00 a.m. – for just CHF 99 per year.
GA Night is the new name for what was previously the seven25 abo. It now costs just CHF 99 instead of CHF 390 per year and can be purchased directly from the BLS webshop or via the BLS Mobil public transport app.
Purchase & payment
You can easily purchase the GA Night online from the BLS webshop or via the BLS Mobil app. Your customer number (000-000-000-0) is required for this. If you don’t have one of these already, an online identity check will be carried out when you make your first purchase. You will need a passport or an ID card, a smartphone with a camera and a recent, high-quality digital passport photo.
If you would like to buy the GA Night for your children, this is also possible, provided you and the child have a SwissPass card including linked SwissPass login.
Staffed ticket offices
Alternatively, you can also purchase the GA Night at your local BLS travel centre or at a staffed public transport ticket office. In this case, please bring your SwissPass with you. If you don’t have a SwissPass, please bring a recent analogue or digital passport photo and your passport or ID card.
The GA Night travelcard is not automatically renewed. However, you will receive a corresponding e-mail in good time reminding you of the upcoming expiry date. If you still wish to have a GA Night travelcard, simply purchase a new one.
Range of validity
With the GA Night, you can travel without restriction between 19.00 and 05.00 until your 25th birthdas on the routes of BLS and most other Swiss railways, on ships, in post buses and on urban local transport. However, there are some exceptions and restrictions, so we recommend to find out the exact range of validity before beginning your journey.
