I have had this app for a while, but it proved it's value this past weekend. I was stuck out of the country during the European flight stoppage due to the volcanic ash and was able to use this app to help me get back home. Not only was I able to see what my train options were, but it also provided me with real time updates on the status of the train. This came in very handy during the last leg of the journey when the conductor kept making announcements in French that I did not understand. I checked the app and by checking the details of my train schedule I found out what was going on - the train was so delayed that it was going to be end its route as soon as we arrived in Basel, Switzerland instead of completing the journey to Zurich. The app even had the information of the train that I was supposed to take to finish the journey. This app is a must for anyone living in or planning to visit Switzerland.
Essential for travelling by Train in Switzerland! We used it for a month and it worked great. Suggestions - it would be nice it the schedules could be accessed without needing wifi or data roaming. Also, it would be great to be able to narrow search parameters to only include trains that take bikes (that would've been helpful for us anyways). One more thing! A map of the specific train to show where the 1st class/2nd class carriages are as well as where the bike carriage is (sometimes it's a separate carriage, sometimes not) so you know where to stand on the platform.
Easier than the platform vending machines, faster than waiting at the counter
You don't need a chip card to find and buy tickets for any Swiss public transit. Works for bike supplements, half-price cards, local metro upgrades, the whole nine yards. Search the national schedule, pick a train, bus cable car etc., and order a ticket against the CC you have on file. Issues an eticket barcode right on your phone. (Just don't run out of battery, because that will make it hard to prove to the conductor that you really did buy!) Limitations: • Won't sell international tickets (although does a good job with timetables) • If you need local bus or metro, it won't sell you a ticket until you search the route from the main station to main station; but then you can buy "alternative tickets" / "local upgrade" / upgrade origin local transit / upgrade destination local transit / or both.
