Tageskarte Gemeinde - Zurich Stadt

Does anyone know if I can get a Tageskarte Gemeinde if you live in Zurich Stadt?

I have been to http://www.tageskarte-gemeinde.ch I can't find Zurich Stadt

Re: Tageskarte Gemeinde - Zurich Stadt

I don't think you can order them online. I think you have to go to their office in person... it'll be here somewhere on the forum....

Re: Tageskarte Gemeinde - Zurich Stadt

I'm sure I've read in the past that Zürich, as a Parish (Gemeinde), doesn't supply them.

Googling 'Gemeinde Tageskarte Zürich' gave me an adddress where they can presumably be obtained there though.

Have a go. Good luck

Re: Tageskarte Gemeinde - Zurich Stadt

For many of the gemeindes you dont need to live there to get the day ticket through them. We have done this many times when our own gemeinde's tickets were sold out. I believe Kloten is such an example.

Re: Tageskarte Gemeinde - Zurich Stadt

You can get a Tageskarte from certain Gemeindes even if you don't live there. Hint: the price varies as well.

Re: Tageskarte Gemeinde - Zurich Stadt

They used to sell it in this little Kiosk near Urania for 56.- Maybe they still do?

Re: Tageskarte Gemeinde - Zurich Stadt

The cards are no longer sold, for lack of demand (as proven by this thread, which has been dormant for years).

Re: Tageskarte Gemeinde - Zurich Stadt

I admit I don't know much about the transport in Zurich, but the city site seems to have something called tageskarte available:

Re: Tageskarte Gemeinde - Zurich Stadt

That's something different.

The thread refers to day passes for the whole of Switzerland, sold in advance at subsidized prices by the Gemeinde to inhabitants of the Gemeinde, while the link you found is a day pass for the public transportation system in the city of Zurich.

Sorry :-)

I actually just bought one in Kilchberg a few weeks ago. Pretty close to Zurich. Paid online & they had it waiting for me that afternoon!

Re: Tageskarte Gemeinde - Zurich Stadt

Yes, the Gemeinde Stadt Zürich stopped offering Tageskarten some years ago. Apparently the costs of administrating the whole thing didn't seem worthwhile. The decison is odd maybe, seeing most other Gemeindes don't seem to have this problem. But that's the nature of large and cumbersome burocracies for you. Cue Yes Minister and the hospital without patients.
