  • Difficult to show ticket to ignorant ticket workers in low reception Oct 5, 2016

    By E12abeth L.
    Convenient for purchasing tickets and good UI/UX but bad for when your ticket gets checked in the middle of a tunnel ride with no reception. Apparently the ticket-checking workers have not been informed about the obvious lack of reception in a dark tunnel affecting the ability to load my ticket on this app! Patience from the ticket workers would be nice. (I got a rude lecture and loud sigh from the ticket worker who was annoyed and didn't understand why she needed to wait a few seconds for my ticket to load in the tunnel between Visp and Bern.) Also, while for security purposes having to sign-in every time I use the app is understandable, it's frustrating in situations above. They should have a feature that keeps you signed in unless a person deliberately logs out.

  • The best transportation app I have used Feb 9, 2020

    This official Swiss public transportation application has everything one wants and more, but in a very simple and easy to figure out user interface. First of all, you may create an account and enter your credit card info so that you don’t have to worry about buying tickets. You can search for departure and arrival destinations by date and time and get a ton of options for train connections with timetables and platform numbers so that you will not have to worry about anything. You can also drag and drop your favorite destinations and buy tickets in advance or while you are onboard the train. The greatest feature though is called Easy ride. You don’t have to buy a ticket. You just swipe to hop on and swipe when you hop off. Once you have reached your final destination, regardless of the number of trains or buses you have changed, the app calculates the lowest fair and charges your credit card directly. You can view past trips, repeat routes, set a home location and get the best options to get there, etc.

  • Awesome App- can't do without it in Switzerland Jul 14, 2015

    I just LOVED it! That's why writing a late night review while still in Switzerland. If you don't have a data plan like me, I looked up all my routes in the hotel the night before and took pictures of the timetable/ schedules that I can pull up offline anytime. Mid you enter arrival and departure cities and time if you want, the app gives all the train timings with connections, and where to change platforms, platform numbers etc. every so many minutes. Very simple and easy. The changing platforms are usually next to each other so take the train right across and the times given are usually few minutes apart- that's why I love the app and the Swiss transport system. Mostly the trains have same times weekdays and run about every 20-60 minutes depending on the route. The timetables at the stations and the little timetable books given at the station as well as the tourist information services are awesome.

    FIRST : Login with SwissID not possible..... I'm running a SBB-App, the SwissPass is valid an can be seen by SBB-APP. Tickets bought , half-tax , any other credit cards are visible. But only with a direct login, SwissID login on SBB-APP is not working. The SwissID login works fine with Swiss Post! SECOND : after a SwissID Update to 3.1.0 an authorization accross two devices with SBB-APP was possible ... not to the same device with both apps installed.....

  • Excellent App Apr 22, 2010

    By TdF in CH
    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.

    Unfortunately, the app is not very convenient for foreigners that are not familiar with the different tariffs und the UX. UX is not intuitive at all if you just want to book single ride tickets. Switched to the web app after 10 minutes of trying to book a ticket... I would like to see a centrally placed ui-element to type in the start and destination, and then get quickly guided through the otc

    Please fix the issue with the new update on the touch timetable. It was working perfectly before, until you fix it, one could set it back it its original status. Otherwise it always worked good.

    This rating reflects how much i despise the latest update to the touch timetable. Before it was just top notch but god knows why they decided to give it a mind of its own and I can't decide buy myself what I want it to show me. Reply to the reply: Well, the issue is that I can't edit anything. When I press the button to do that I get stuck on the option to swipe the area of personalized tiles. I go up and down to change the area but when I press done which is the only other thing I'm able to do I'm back to normal mode and I'm not able to personalize anything.

    Not updated! Malpensa Airport changed train time table first December and on the 4th is not yet updated (while the Italian app of Trenord is correct). Disappointing!!

  • Loved it! Aug 25, 2009

    By HuckleberryPie
    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 Jun 26, 2013

    By abdhdurhdhd
    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.

    fewer tiles in touch timetable since upgrade: the upgrade removed the last row of tiles that i had configured (yes, i used all four rows). after removing the smart tiles i discovered that the overall number of tiles got reduced. with four rows of tiles i still have "from", "to", and "current" as special tiles. but the last two search results are gone. for how i used the touch timetable a regression.

  • Great app but 1 suggestion Feb 28, 2018

    By Md202020
    When I find the route schedule I want, then buy the ticket, there’s no link to the route details. I would like to have the selected route’s connection times, tram/busstops, platforms, and info quickly available instead of having to search again and again at each stop along my journey. This is a bit of an oversight, otherwise the app is excellent.

    A pity they messed up the touch timetable. The app is very good for finding connections and even storing your tickets, but a recent "upgrade" destroyed the very helpful map-style "touch-timetable". It has no relation with geography anymore, I can't put fotos on places anymore, what a shame.

  • Need more time for class upgrades Dec 18, 2017

    By SwissAir is the Worst
    The newest version refuses to let you buy any ticket as soon as the train is scheduled to leave (even if the train is late). This is particularly annoying with class upgrades. There are many mornings it takes a few minutes to realize there are no seats in 2nd class. I would happily pay to upgrade my to first class, but the app won't let you as of the second the train is SCHEDULED to depart. There is no accounting for late trains and no grace periods for class upgrades. Please let me give you my money! More money for SBB and no more journeys spent miserable (and hot) standing in 2nd class.

    The very useful dynamic tiles function is now completely broken. It shows stations I have never visited and editing is not possible as the "delete", "edit" and "add" functions are greyed out. Great pity for an otherwise excellent app
