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

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: and (in German only).

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