Hi Lucas -
<<"I have a feeling the conductors don't see much of those tickets anymore
(ones that need to be validated after purchase) pretty rare now, hence
the lack of orange machines to find and they'd remember punching it
earlier for you.">>
It has been a few years, but I used to buy supplemental day cards to use with my Halb-tax. I'd get one ticket of light-weight piece of cardboard that had to be validated, When I put it in the orange machine, it bit off a corner, and stamped a date and time. Each of the 6 times I used it, it would nibble off a bit more along one side of the ticket, and stamp another date..
Apparently they still exist.
I think they need a machine for validation, but I think that conductors have a punch with a date stamp tha can be used.
Since much of this kind of has become electronic, I'm a bit surprised to find that offer.
I think I recall validating a ticket of some sort on a city bus.....? I know that one can buy Zürich city day cards in advance and then validate them some how.
