How to identify car numbers?

New Member

How do you tell what the car numbers are? For example on order #127462263 I am traveling from Zurich Flaghafen to Olten of my first leg TO Zermatt and have seat reservations in car 2, seats 25 and 26. How will I be able to tell which car is car 2 at the station? Same thing on the Bern to Visp leg, how will I tell which is car 9 at Bern? Thanks for any assistance.



Hello @mrbradshaw

You can see the car number by every car. You can display a train’s formation in the SBB mobile app from about three hours before it departs by swiping left on the train or online (click on “Show train information”).
