Children on bus - a bus pass for the Nanny

Hello -

I have a part time nanny who picks up my daughter (6) from school and comes home on the bus. I am looking for the most affordable way for the nanny to travel with her on the bus. On the SBB website it says the junior card must be purchased by a parent or grandparent but I wonder if this could be an option for the nanny. It isn't clear if the parent/grandparent is the person that must be traveling with them or if they could ride with another adult who has a ticket.

If the junior card isn't an option, do any of you have any thoughts on other ways to get a decent fare for her?

Thanks!

Does the nanny already have a halbtax?

How often does she do that? If it's every day, a weekly or monthly pass is the way to go. (And possibly a taxable benefit in kind).

According to mine - the parent card isn't transferable. I.e. it only works when I'm carrying and travelling with my daughter. I'd love to be wrong though!

Re: Children on bus - a bus pass for the Nanny

As Tom suggested, daily or frequent trips would be cheapest with a monthly or annual pass. A few trips each week, then you'd have to check the price difference between the pass and "mehrfahrtenkarten", multi-trip passes. My kids only travel to or from school without me on rare occasions, but they each have a card in their wallet to clip when traveling without me. You can buy them in bulk, either at a ticket office or online.

Curiously, the online ticket shop appears to not be available in English.
