Is a person living in Zurich allowed to mix up ZVV from VBZ

There is this person complaining and being offended about some advertisement he has seen.

This person, seemingly lives in Zurich. But is somewhat unable to distinguish the Cities own Public Transport Cooperation VBZ from the Cantons Public Transport Network ZVV.

I am highly offended, as a person born in Zurich, as person living in Zurich, and as a proud citizen of Zurich. Such a mix-up is beyond believe and not tolerable. What is your opinion?

Btw: Here is the advert http://www.20min.ch/schweiz/zuerich/story/22553759

It was made by Ruf Lanz which were als responsible for most of the VBZ adverts in the past:

Re: Is a person living in Zurich allowed to mix up ZVV from VBZ

I've seen a bunch of those over my time, didn't realize there was a collection of all of them.


Some of them are very good! And I'm usually very critical about the marketing abilities from what I see in CH.


I also would have made the mistake ZVV vs VBZ

Not being Swiss the ZVV and VBZ look the same to me
