I don't see the time or platform from where I leave, anywhere on my printed out ticket. Am I supposed to know this time from when I purchased? Or do I keep the schedule with me? Help!

Hello Frischkop, and welcome! You probably have a ticket that's valid all day long, so it doesn't matter which specific train you use or at which time you travel (as long as you follow the route that's printed on your tickets and don't make detours of course). Traveling times and platforms can be found in the online timetable, that shows the most direct routes by default. Just select the departure time you prefer. If you like, you can print your specific connection and carry it along, but you'll find excellent information on the train stations too.

Thanks....I was so confused. Also, this form of travel is not listed anywhere on this forum. I found the SBBTICKETDI way cheaper than the passes.....at least for my kind of travel.

Hi Frischklop. I'm not sure what you mean by 'SBBTicketd'. Do you mean the regular point-to-point tickets that can be ordered at the SBB website? If so, please be aware that their website shows half fare prices by default and that you have to untick the 'half fare' box in order to get full fare prices. These can add up quickly if you want to make several trips in Switzerland; that's way a rail pass is cheaper for most travelers.

The SBB website is showing half price fares by default, so you need to uncheck that option to see the regular fares. Half price fares require a pass such as the Swiss Half Fare Card.

I did buy a half day fare ticket. I'm only traveling thru Brig to obergelsten then from blitzengen back to Zurich. Do I buy the month 1/2 pass or the year 1/2 pass?

I went on your web site and bought the 1/2 fare card....there are soooomany web sites selling tickets and passes, all at different prices. Very confusing to this Swiss traveler.
