So whether it’s the train, the tram, the bus, the boat or even the cable car you wanted to take – you were able to travel for free on them all.  This was all part of ZVV’s 25 year celebrations and their thank you to their loyal Zurich customers.

Free Nachtzuschlag too!

Even the CHF 5 additional night service ticket was free too – this time a gift from Zürcher Kantonalbank.

1st Class Upgrades

All free travel related to second class travel, but if you wanted to travel first class you simply needed to buy a 1st class supplement.

The free travel began just after midnight on the morning of Sunday, May 31st 2015 and ran until 5am on 1st June. You could travel all day by train (2nd class), tram, bus, boat and cable car. Free travel was limited to routes within the ZVV network area. For journeys which went beyond the ZVV perimeters you needed a valid ticket or connection ticket (Anschlussbillet) from the last stop within the ZVV area.
