Clarification of the validity of point to point ticket

New Author


As far as I know "A point to point ticket is only valid on the chosen journey". But it is not written that "they are only valid to get on SBB trains" either on the screens of Automats or on the printed tickets  (Point to point ticket/ called streckenbillet).

Should all the ticket buyers  of "Point to point ticket" know this rule or should visit SBB website for this information?

For example if a person wants to go to Zürich/Altstetten from Bern and bought a Point to Point ticket. And after Zürich, he used the Tram to go to Altstetten. Is he responsible about that mistake, becasue he doesn't know that "Streckenbillets are only valid to get on SBB trains

Thank you in advance for your reply.




Hello @arifatih 

Thank you for your post. 

A point-to-point ticket from Bern to Zürich Altstetten is valid all the way, on the tram form Zürich HB to Zürich Altstetten as well.

I wish you a pleasant day. 

Kind regards
