New look for SBB Fahrplan search

I was wondering why there was a rare problem with their website yesterday, and was pleasantly surprised with their new look today.

Hmmm....http://fahrplan.sbb.ch/bin/query.exe/en

That's an uncommon thing to have in a url.

But yes, looks nicer.

I use their official android app which I find much easier and with the possibility of booking tickets as well.

They never had one of those last time I checked.

They have apps for Windows mobile 7, ovi and blackberry now as well.

The mobile site is useful for anyone without a smart phone though

Yep, this one is recent.
The last one I used was an semi-official app by some ETH students.
It was great as well, but this one is better, and official.

PS: Added a link to it in my original post. Can also be found easily in the Android Market by searching for "sbb".

Re: New look for SBB Fahrplan search

Not into the new drop down menus. Too much info for a drop down (or is it more a pop down) and a really bright blue color sends me into a panic. Picky, picky me.

They always had the GA for students but the add on visa looks new.

Re: New SBB website?

I hate the new website ! At many subpages there are problems with links and not only this.

For the last week when I try to buy International ticket I get the following message:
Important service notification
At present we have a reply delay of 3 to 4 days for enquiries regarding international trips, which can not be calculated online. Thanking you kindly in advance for your understanding.


I have sent few emails explaining problems that I have found on the website but nothing has changed yet.

Guess this is the way it is going to be for some time.

Re: New look for SBB Fahrplan search

nikolay, I've never been able to buy an international ticket on the SBB Web site. Always got that same message you are quoting. Therefore I prefer DB or OEBB for my travels.

Re: New look for SBB Fahrplan search

tomcat, thank you for your suggestion.

I managed to buy one of the two tickets I need. It turned out that you are not allow to print international ticket yourself on your home printer Wonder why?!

Anyway, the point is that I am very disappointed with this new SBB site.
