Where can I travel with the Swiss Travel Pass Flex?

The basic rules are:

  • Trains and buses to villages are free;
  • Transport into the mountains (by cable car, funicular, cogwheel train, etc.) is discounted;
  • City transport (trams, buses) is free in 75 towns;
  • Boats are free, except for special cruises such as dinner cruises;
  • The Swiss Travel Pass Flex is valid in Switzerland only. A few rail and bus routes crossing the border allow free traveling too. Examples are EuroAirport (France) to Basel, Martigny to Chamonix-Mont-Blanc (France), Brig to Domodossola (Italy) and Domodossola to Locarno;
  • The Swiss Travel Pass Flex does not offer discounted tickets to Germany and Austria. That only applies to the Generalabonnement (GA) that is commonly used by Swiss citizens.

How the map works

  • Free and discounted traveling is explained in the bottom of the map;
  • Traveling with the Swiss Travel Pass Flex applies to all trains that operate on the indicated lines and that are listed in the timetables. The train type (InterCity, local, panoramic) and the operating company do not matter. The Glacier Express, Bernina Express, Golden Pass and other panoramic trains are thus included;
  • Some lines are dashed to indicate longer tunnels, but free traveling applies there too. Frutigen to Visp is an example of such a route;
  • There are too many bus routes to fit on the map. In principle, all public bus services are free of charge.
