Travel around Switzerland with just one ticket.
The SwissPass is the key to your mobility and also the first step in a new era for travelling with public transport. The SwissPass is replacing the blue GA or Half-Fare travelcard and offers you even more benefits than before because the SwissPass Plus will give you access to Mobility Carsharing, PubliBike and SwitzerlandMobility partner services and to ski resorts.
How the SwissPass works
Your SwissPass is a plastic card – just like your previous season tickets. However, the difference is the SwissPass is fitted with two electronic RFID chips. Your customer number is saved onto these chips which serves as verification of your name and the type and validity of your season ticket.
The most important changes
Mobile without interruption – but only if you want to
- You no longer have to worry about renewing your season ticket with the SwissPass. You are reminded promptly of the expiry date before the season ticket is automatically renewed.
- The inspection staff check your season ticket using an electronic reader. You will need to hand over your SwissPass for this.
- The staff check your photo and name as well as the type and validity of your season ticket.
Manage your details conveniently and easily
- Online at swisspass.ch
You can access your details and manage them online at any time using your customer account on swisspass.ch.
- By telephone or in your Travel Centre
You can request all the information about your booked services by phone or in person at our BLS Travel Centres. You also have the option to cancel your season ticket in this way.
- Partner services
The SwissPass opens the door to a Mobility car, unlocks the PubliBike rental bike and sets the ski resort turnstile in motion. Therefore, you have a ticket for various public transport season tickets and partner services. You can find a list of all current partner services at swisspass.ch. New ones are being added constantly.
The data on your SwissPass is guaranteed to be protected at all times. Both RFID chip components on your card serve as a way of checking your entitlement to buy public transport services and also of reading ski passes. No customer information is stored on the chips, simply a technical identification number. Upon inspection, the reader reads the identification number and connects it to services you have bought. Unauthorised parties have no access to your personal data. You can find more information in our brochure.
