I was travelling to Schwerzenbach from Zürich with a connection zone ticket and a Zürich( zone 10 )month card. Well at Dubendorf I got into a ticket control and as I got my Half Tax card out I saw that it was more than 1 month expired.
Well I hoped the ticket controller would not see that it was expired -but no such luck!Well he was not sure what to do so he called his boss to help. He spoke a few words to his boss and suddenly his boss said that THEY have to get off the train ( the train was coming in to Dubendorf. I asked if I had to get out and they said no-even though it was clear that I was travelling on an expired halftax. Such luck!!
. My question later was how could I buy a Zurich monthly card with a halftax that was expired, as in order to get a Zürich monthly card on the machine one has to give in the details of the Half Tax.Something wrong with their system there.
