Traveling in Basel area with monthly ticket (RegioCard Light) & Swiss Half Fare Card

I am from Hong Kong and I have a Swiss Half Fare Card & a Family Card for my kids.

I will be traveling for 1 month in Basel area with my family (wife, 7 year old girl, 9 year old boy). I will stay in Dornach and would like to do sight seeing in Basel. I will take SBB train and I will also take tram in Basel.

1) As a foreigner, is there any monthly ticket for my travel in Basel to use? Is it called "RegioCardPlus Light (102 CHF)"?

2) If I can purchase as a foreigner, what is the price with Half fare card? will it be 51CHF?

3) Do my kid need to purchase the 25 and under ticket (80CHF)? Can they travel free of charge if we have a Family Card?

Hi @FelixArthur 

There is no further reduction with the Swiss Half-Fare Card (Season Tickets are already calculated on a reduced kilometre rate)

Please find all information at: https://www.tnw.ch/en/tickets-preise/abonnemente/das-u-abo and https://rvl-online.de/tickets/regiocard-plus-light/ (in German only).

For advice, please call us on +41 848 44 66 88 (CHF 0.08/min) or fill in the contact form. 

Kind regards

The subscription is personal - issued in your name, which means it cannot be transferred to anyone else. It is only valid together with some other form of personal ID (identity card, passport, Half-Fare Travelcard, SwissPass, U-Abo Card or TNW basic card). If you leave your U-Abo at home, you have ten days to produce it at any of our sales offices. All you pay is a CHF 5 processing fee and not the surcharge for travellers who don’t own a valid ticket, which is at least CHF 100. Should you lose your personal subscription, you can order a replacement, for which the processing fee is CHF 30. U-Abo for adults, transferable A transferable U-Abo is also available. It is issued in your name, but an ID isn’t required and this U-Abo can be loaned to anyone else. However: if you lose it, you cannot get a replacement substitute, and leaving it at home is considered as travelling without a valid ticket. The transferable U-Abo is only valid for the in 9apps and cartoonhd
