Greater comfort when travelling during pregnancy
With the Mothers Pass, BLS allows expectant mothers to travel in first class without any surcharge until the birth of their child (or children), thereby offering them greater comfort during pregnancy. The Mothers Pass is available from all BLS Travel Centres and sales points except Lake Thun and Lake Brienz Cruise. You can also order your own personal Mothers Pass using the form below. If doing so, please include one of the following proofs of eligibility: a doctor’s note or a pregnancy pass. The proof of eligibility is used to confirm the pregnancy and will be deleted thereafter.
Where and for whom is the Mothers Pass valid?
- The Mothers Pass is valid on all BLS trains and the BLS cruise boats. The Mothers Pass is not valid for other transport companies (e.g. SBB, RBS, etc.).
- In order to benefit from the Mothers Pass, you will always need a valid second-class ticket.
- The Mothers Pass is only available to women resident in Switzerland.
- The free change of class also includes your children up to the age of six as well as your children up to the age of sixteen, as long as the latter hold a Junior travelcard. Any additional people accompanying you will need their own valid ticket to travel in first class.
