Enjoy your travels - to wherever they might be in whichever mode of transportation. Try the CGN cruise from Ouchy - the Tageskarte is valid to the French side and back.
The synoptic map may be updated every once in a while - so check it often to see the changes ie new exit points up to where the Tageskarte may be valid as free or with reduced fare ( I just realised it is now valid up to Livinio )
Just a little note when booking European journeys via the SBB website.
Yesterday, I went to book a return trip in May from Zurich to Paris using the lowest fares for direct connections option, I selected the journey & price that I wanted & then it all got stuck in the seating reservations section, saying that any combanation that I wanted was unavailable - after going back & forth a few times, I decided to quit & start again.
The exact same journey had now jumped in price by nearly 70 chf in that time!! - so I left it as I was passing ZHB later. I asked at the reiseburo what the deal was & they said that this often happens & nothing that they can do about it.
This morning I tried again online & to my suprise the same journey was now 100 chf cheaper than the last one I got yesterday & seating res request no problem & I booked it all fine.
Which leads me to speculate that mucking around back and forth with the seating reservation section somehow triggers the system to think that demand has suddenly gone up & it up's the prices as a result.
please any one can help me out i willl be studying in lugano and living in zurich please what kind of travel pass will i have to buy and how much will it cost me if it has to do with monthly payment
The journy from Zurich HB to Lugano Railwaystation will take at least 2 hours and 37 minutes and there is no way you will make it to Lugano before 8:46 am. Your commute seems to be a little bit unrealistic to me.
For parents: In addition to buying the half-fare card ("demi-tarif") for yourself, make sure to buy a "carte junior" for your children, age 6-15. For a modest fee (I think it was CHF 40) your children can travel for free with a parent for the whole year. This covers travel on buses, trains, boats, cablecars, etc. Of course, if your children are not with you, they have to pay regular fare.
If two parents each have the demi-tarif and your kids have the carte junior, your whole family can travel for the price of a single adult.
