Hi!

Does Swiss Transfer Ticket cover all the routes from Zurich to Livigno?

Hi t2pikee and welcome to MySwissAlps!

The Swiss Transfer Ticket covers only the most direct routes to your destination (as indicated on the Swiss railways timetable as it always gives you the direct route by default). This trip is 3.5 to 4 hours long.

In your case it would cover you to the Italian border only. The last train station is Zernez and the last bus stop is Punt la Drossa p4.

See below. This is the answer given by one of your moderators to a similar question. According to that the whole trip to Livigno is covered by swiss transfer ticket. I have also found other forums where people claim that. I am very confused now , have the rules changed or is it wrong information?

Hi Marianne. Thanks for joining MySwissAlps!

If this is the only Swiss journey you plan to make, you're best off getting regular train and bus tickets. The timetableprovides all details for your journey. First you need to catch a train to Zernez. You can arrange for these train tickets online beforehand or buy them at the railway station of Zurich Airport.

Next, there's the bus from Zernez (close to the border but still in Switzerland) to Livigno in Italy. Seat reservations or pre-purchased tickets aren't necessary, you can just buy tickets from the bus driver or at the Zernez station.

Note that if you also need to return from Livigno to Zurich Airport, a Swiss Transfer Ticket will be cheaper than regular full-fare tickets. It's easier as well, as it covers the entire route without the need of any further tickets.

I hope this helps!

Ah good catch! You'll see on the PDF map on our Swiss Transfer Ticket page that it is indeed valid on that bus route. :) My mistake! That's what I get for not triple checking that PDF map for the odd exception to the rule. There are a few exceptions with Swiss rail passes and their coverage in other countries - typically it is only valid within Switzerland.

The PDF tells no lies. :)

Happy travels.
