The graubündenPASS coverage map
The map shows you where you can travel. That's basically all trains and buses in Graubünden, plus a few cableways. Urban transport in Chur, Davos, Scuol, and St. Moritz is included too.
How the map works
- The lines on the map indicate free routes (train and bus rides) or discounted routes (selected mountain rides).
- Traveling with the graubündenPASS applies to all trains that operate on the indicated lines and that are listed in the timetables. The train type (InterCity, local, panoramic) and the operating company do not matter. Panoramic trains such as the Glacier Express (between the Oberalppass and St. Moritz) and Bernina Express (the entire route) are thus included, except for seat reservations.
- There's a north-western zone and a south-eastern zone. If you buy a graubündenPASS for both zones, the entire validity map applies.
How does the graubündenPASS work?
The travel days can be used as you like, either consecutively or non-consecutively. Simply hop on and off trains and buses as you like.
How to select your graubündenPASS travel days
This is how you pick a travel day:
- Log into the website https://activateyourpass.com using the details on your purchase receipt.
- Select a date from the calendar.
- Select one of the below options to get a day ticket:
- Print ticket: this will download a PDF document with your ticket. We recommend this option because you can store the document on your phone (or tablet) just like any other PDF document, and show it on request. This works even when you are offline. You can print the document, but that’s not required.
- Add to wallet: this adds the ticket to a wallet app. This normally also works when offline.
- Show ticket: this shows the ticket but does not store it anywhere.
Obtain your day ticket before you start traveling, not when you’re already on board. You can cancel a day ticket until the day before it is valid. We recommend obtaining your day tickets in the evening or the morning prior to traveling. That way you minimize the chance that your travel plans change.
If you do not have internet access while traveling, be sure to obtain your day ticket before you leave your accommodation, so you can log on via the Wifi there.
There are two types of trips for routes included in the graubündenPASS:
- Trips on routes that allow free traveling. You can just board any train or bus, etc. on such routes. You do not need a ticket.
- Some trips by mountain transport allow discounted traveling. You need to arrange for a discounted ticket at the ticket office of the cableway. Show your pass to get the discount.
You do not need seat reservations for 99% of all trains and buses in Graubünden. You can just board with your graubündenPASS.
Exceptions are some international trains and some panoramic trains like the Bernina Express and Glacier Express. If you need or want seat reservations, you need to arrange for them separately. Seat reservations are not included in the graubündenPASS.
On board the train
Once you’re on board, you will need to present your graubündenPASS to ticket controllers upon request. The controller may want to check your passport as well, to make sure you’re the owner of the presented pass.
How do I know if the graubündenPASS is my best option?
The graubündenPASS is a good fit if you don’t travel every day, don’t travel a lot on cableways, and if you only travel within the canton of Graubünden. In that case, the flexibility and ticketless traveling might be worth it for you. If you need more, find alternatives here.
I need more travel days, what can I do?
I will only travel locally, not in all of Graubünden: what’s best?
Apart from a graubündenPASS for all of Graubünden, you can also choose a version for just 1 zone: north-west or south-east. This is about 30% cheaper. We only recommend this if you’re sure you’ll be traveling in a small area.
