Tickets for each leg of journey with half fare pass- how easy the process is

New Author

We are comparing half fare pass v/s Swiss travel pass for 4 days. Child under 16 will be charged NIL if accompanied by parents in both cases.


How easy it will be to take a new ticket for each leg of journey while using half fare card? We wish to estimate it as finding the ticket vending machine, buying ticket etc may be time consuming task every time unless SBB provides a prepaid card which deducts money for each travel based on half fare pass eligibility. Look for guidance. Thanks.

Hi @Vijay

Tickets can easily be purchased on the SBB Mobile App,, at the ticket vending machines and the ticket counter at the train station.

More information on the online purchase can be found here:

Have a nice day,
