Hi Yolli123, thank you for posting here!

The Swiss Transfer Ticket covers the entire trip to Livigno and back, and is cheaper than regular tickets. You need to print it yourself through www.swissrailways.com/ en. After filling out your address, they will show the delivery options. Pick "Online Ticket" from the bottom of the list. They will e-mail the pass (no delivery fees) within 3 business days.

For schedules you can fill out your trip in the timetable.

Have a good trip!

So so sorry to bug again but there is so much information that I'm getting confused. Is the attached correct for what i need? Can i continue to purchase? Then all i need is the timetable to confirm times. I see there is a transfer but i am not sure which one to select as livigno not an option? I don't have to confirm that now or do i? Scared held up at customs and need to take a later train than planned.

Please login to see the attached documents

Hi Yolli123,

You just need the timetable to check the train schedules. You don't need to purchase anything there. It is geared to Swiss citizens, not tourist, when it comes to tickets and passes. You can purchase as I explained in my first reply, through the SBB web shop for tourists. The purchase process is very simple, and the ticket is valid for all trains, so no need to worry about taking a later train.

No problem! You'd normally change 3 times: in Zürich HB (main station), Landquart and Zernez. Note that Zernez to Livigno is a bus, not a train. The bus is included in the Swiss Transfer Ticket too. The timetable I referred to shows all the details of the trip.
