Hi all, i wanted to know if there is any offline train/bus/boat pass available for Switzerland? The mobile application of sbb seems to be online. I am looking for some pdf time table of all trains.

let me know in case anyone has such details.

Hi Dharmesh5,

Most large train stations in Switzerland do provide pocket timetables for you.

Try this link and click on the letter for the corresponding town you are looking for. It's another PDF timetable you can print and hopefully works for you.

Hi Dharmesh5,

Will you have internet access in your hotel?

If you use the SBB Mobile app to find suitable services/connections while you are in the hotel, you could save the details to your device for offline reference during the day.

Hi Dharmesh5-

<<"There is around 200mb data. Post downloading there are many pdf files in it. ">>

There are a lot of trains in Switzerland. ;-)

The paper version of the timetable ( 2017 is the last year it will be published) is a book of 2303 pages, approximately 5 cm. thick. Actually, there are about 20 more blank pages at the back for taking notes, so it actually has about 2320 pages.

You can buy it at any train station, and for about 16 CHF total cost you also get 2 additional books about 10-12 cm thick, total for those 2, showing all the bus lines, too. It does not require internet or telephone access. It does require a strong back to carry all that paper. ;-)
