The zone system applies to the entire Onde Verte transport network. On the zone plan, you can see how many adjoining zones you have to purchase from the starting point to the destination. Your ticket is valid for all public transport in the purchased zones and during the period of validity.


Connecting tickets for trips outside the purchased zones

Simply buy a ticket (zone-connecting ticket) for the missing zones.

Do you want to travel beyond the borders of the regional network?

Your regional network travelcard is valid up until the last scheduled stop in the purchased zones. For travel beyond the regional network, simply buy a ticket from the last stop of the selected means of transport within the zones included in your travelcard / ticket. Regional network tickets are not valid on trains that do not stop within these zones.

I don’t have a SwissPass yet. What can I do?

SwissPass – one card for everything

As soon as you buy a half-fare or other type of travelcard, you will automatically be given a SwissPass card. You just need a valid ID card (or another official identity document) and a current passport photo. As a first-time purchaser, you can also now purchase your travelcard in the BLS webshop and confirm your identity online in just a few minutes directly at a ticket office.


Will my travelcard be automatically renewed?

No, the Onde Verte travelcard will not be automatically renewed. You can renew it manually in the BLS webshop, in the BLS Mobil app, at a ticket machine or at a ticket office.

How can I cancel my Onde Verte travelcard?

You can cancel your Onde Verte travelcard early at a ticket office.
The Onde Verte travelcard is not automatically renewed, so if you don’t want to renew it, you don’t need to do anything.

Can I deposit/interrupt my Onde Verte travelcard?

No, it is not possible to deposit/interrupt a regional travelcard.

Is a regional travelcard cheaper with the half-fare travelcard?

No, you cannot combine a regional travelcard with a half-fare travelcard. 

Can I combine a regional and point-to-point travelcard?

Do you regularly commute between fare networks or outside a fare network and want to use local transport? We recommend a modular travelcard.

Is my Onde Verte travelcard also valid for the night network?

Yes. Your Onde verte travelcard is also valid on Moonliner lines. A night surcharge is no longer required.

You can find more information about the fare conditions of Swiss transport companies here:

Also available in the Onde Verte regional network

If you only travel occasionally on public transport, you can, of course, also buy single tickets, multi-trip tickets and 1-day travelcards in the Onde Verte region. The validity period is between 60 and 180 minutes, depending on the number of zones included.

Single tickets – more than just a one-way ticket

In the selected Onde Verte zones, you can take any number of trips on the train, tram and bus up until the ticket expires.

Multi-trip ticket – 6 trips for the price of 5

With a multi-trip ticket, you save at least 16% whilst enjoying extra time and convenience because you already have your ticket ready in your pocket.

24-hour ticket – free travel the whole day long

There is an hourly ticket for every combination of zones required. For the cities of La Chaux-de-Fonds and Le Locle, there is a special 24-hour ticket available just for the city area.
