Additional zones purchase? Only limited choices

New Member
Dear all,

Was trying to buy additional zones for 3 zones, upon a specific route search, which showed that i need to pass 4. Since 110 was included in my monthly pass, was trying to find an option to purchase 3. Only showed me one option with 4.
On the SBB ATM, you can choose, here on the mobile app, there is only one selection available.
I downloaded now the ZVV app, where you can purchase singe zones.
Is this only an error on mine? The ticket officer could not give me a clear answer.
Its a ripp off, since you pay far more than on the ATM for the exact amount of zones you need.

Thanking you in advance for the effort.

I don't see the options to purchase 3 zone ticket through app.

Hi @deepkris 

You can insert the start and destination stations and the app gives you automatically the quickest way, showing also how many zones you need. 

Please do not hesitate to contact our colleagues at the SBB Contact Center (0848 44 66 88) for further information.

I wish you a pleasant day.

Kind regards


Hello SBB,

please could you provide reason why standalone option to buy extension tickets is still rejected to be implemented as it was in the old application?

most of users know very well how many zones they need to buy
