All you need to use SwissPass Mobile is a valid SwissPass card, a SwissPass login associated with it, and an app that supports SwissPass Mobile.

Use the app of your choice

SwissPass Mobile is available on several public transport apps and this is constantly being extended further. The following apps currently support SwissPass Mobile:

SwissPass Mobile – your SwissPass on your smartphone.

SwissPass Mobile is a feature that you can activate in different public transport apps under “Settings”.

Display public transport travelcards.

With SwissPass Mobile, you can digitally display all public transport travelcards which are also on the SwissPass card. This includes the Half Fare Travelcard, GA Travelcard, fare network travelcards or the seven25 Travelcard.

Note: electronic tickets cannot be retrieved via SwissPass Mobile. You must display these separately.

You can display the services of the following SwissPass partners with SwissPass Mobile via QR code and barcode:

  • Tipo Ticketing
  • Hotelcard
  • Swissrent

As quick and convenient as an electronic ticket.

At the inspection you can call up the relevant app on your digital device and show the SwissPass Mobile screen to the train staff checking the tickets. They will use a scanner to read the QR code.

More flexibility

As soon as you have activated SwissPass Mobile, you can decide for yourself which carrier medium you wish to show. The only difference when using SwissPass Mobile is that you must carry the SwissPass card or an official ID document with you (passport, ID or driving licence). Please note: If SwissPass Mobile cannot be correctly displayed, you will need to show your SwissPass card. Presentation of an official ID document is insufficient and will not entitle you to travel.

We take data protection seriously

To prevent misuse, customer data is processed when using SwissPass Mobile (e.g. inspection data). These are treated with the greatest care and only used to identify improper use.

If you continue to use only the SwissPass card, no customer data will be collected. Even if you have already used SwissPass Mobile, once it is deactivated no further data will be collected.

At swisspass.ch you can manage all devices on which SwissPass Mobile is activated.

Using SwissPass Mobile.

Where is SwissPass Mobile accepted?

SwissPass Mobile can be used for all transport companies within Switzerland, wherever the service included on the SwissPass is valid.

What should be noted when using SwissPass Mobile?

To display SwissPass Mobile on the digital device, it is important to have activated the feature properly, and you must also have sufficiently battery power and a display that is undamaged. To make sure that the app synchronises correctly during the inspection, the time on the mobile device must correspond to the current time. It is recommended to set the time on the mobile device automatically via the phone network. This thereby ensures that SwissPass Mobile can be checked correctly

Do I still have to have the SwissPass card with me when using SwissPass Mobile?

You are obliged to provide identification if requested by the checking staff. You can show either a valid official ID (e.g. passport, ID card or driving licence) or the SwissPass card.

Since there may be unforeseen events (insufficient battery or a damaged display), we also recommend carrying the SwissPass card with you when using SwissPass Mobile.

Can I use both SwissPass Mobile and the SwissPass card as I wish?

Yes, you can decide flexibly whether you wish to show SwissPass Mobile or the SwissPass card at any ticket check.

Do I still need the SwissPass card?

You receive the SwissPass card irrespective of whether or not you use SwissPass Mobile. You can therefore decide for yourself depending on the circumstances whether you would rather use the card or the mobile device. We recommend that you carry the SwissPass card with you when using SwissPass Mobile.

Also, you will still need the SwissPass card when using partner services (ski pass, Mobility etc.).

In the case of half fare e-tickets, can I also show SwissPass Mobile in place of the e-ticket?

No, that is not possible. The information about the half fare e-ticket cannot be called up via the SwissPass card or SwissPass Mobile. For e-tickets that are associated with the SwissPass card, the relevant e-ticket must be shown at the inspection.

What happens if SwissPass Mobile is not working?

You are responsible for the correct displaying of SwissPass Mobile. If SwissPass Mobile cannot be checked (e.g. dead battery, damaged display, no long-term online connection available), you will need to show your SwissPass card.

If you do not have the SwissPass card with you, this counts as a journey without a valid ticket and supplements or processing fees will be charged according to the provisions of the fare to be applied. Should such events occur, we recommend that you always additionally carry the SwissPass card, even when using SwissPass Mobile.

What happens if I pass my SwissPass card or SwissPass Mobile to someone else?

The services referred to on SwissPass Mobile are personal and cannot be transferred. If misuse is identified during the check or due to the usage behaviour, the relevant fare provisions will be applied. Aside from this, SwissPass Mobile can be withdrawn from a customer (deactivated) without reasons being given.

Can I see my services on ticket machines?

Yes, this is also possible with SwissPass Mobile at all ticket machines where the SwissPass card can be read via a scanner.
