Hello AcmTam and Welcome to MySwissAlps,
Does the pass give us the use of the trams, trains and buses in Zurich and Lucerne?
Yes. See www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass.
A clearly mapped out itinerary is the basis of for deciding which pass (if any) suits. Based on your itinerary you need to do the sums based on the cost of all your planned trips on trains, boats, cable cars etc. You can use the Swiss Train Timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable) to work out the fares for any trip. When you go to buy a ticket the fare you see on the right hand side of the page will normally be the half-fare price. Double it to get full fare. With A Swiss Travel Pass it is free provided it is shown as free on the Area of Validity map ( PDF downloadable from www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass/validity).
You should read “How to choose the best travel pass” (www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass).
As well as the Swiss Travel Pass there are many reigonal passes (www.myswissalps.com/re gionalpasses) which can work depending on where you are based and how much travel you plan. With the Tell Pass (www.myswissalps.com/te llpass) for example just about everything in and around Lucerne is free (including Pilatus and Titlis).
Luzern is a great city for a base. Zurich not so much and it is only an hour from Lucerne anyway. You might want to think about a base in the Jungfrau Region like Wengen for example to explore that area. Any reason you picked Zurich?
