Single tickets


Single tickets for one-way journeys are available at all TNW ticket machines, at the BVB Customer Service Centre, at the BLT ticket counter, via the TNW Tickets app, as well as at the SBB railway station. Children between the ages of 6 and 16 and half-fare travelcard holders pay a concessionary price for single tickets. Both accompanied and unaccompanied children under the age of 6 travel free of charge. The GA (Generalabonnement – general travelcard) is valid on BVB’s entire route network throughout Switzerland.

One-way tickets entitle the holder to any journey within the zone(s) purchased and within the period of validity printed on the ticket (new since 10.12.2023).

The short-distance ticket is valid for 30 minutes, including transfers. The ticket is valid from the point of boarding for four stops or tax points (in both directions).
