We will be purchasing the 7 day regional pass which has 3 free days and 4 1/2 fare days. We want to use the free days on our 1,2 and 5th day of travel. The pass details say that the free days do no have to be consequtive. I was wondering if we are supposed to activate the free portion on the days we need it or how does it keep track of which days we use the free part and which days we're travelling with an additional 1/2 fare ticket. Thanks

Hi Natashaover,

Which regional pass do you mean? There are several passes for several regions, listed here. In general I can say that such passes have fields in which you can write or stamp a date. If you did not do so for the current day, and the pass is still valid, it is assumed a "discount day".

Does this answer your question?

Thanks Annika, this answers my question. Just FYI I was referring to the Geneva regional pass..
