Re: ZVV free all day 31st May 2015

It is for the local traffic system in Zurich, the ZVV (Zürcher Verkehrsverbund) - definitely not for Lugano.

Re: ZVV free all day 31st May 2015

It's bound to be busy - but it says here you can buy an "upgrade" ticket to first class. Shows the "free zone" diagram too and says the "Nachtzuschlag" is free too: http://newinzurich.com/?p=72360

25 years ZVV

ZVV Zürich on 31st May celebrated 25 years of existence and you could use their Network free of charge


For Schaffhausen you had to get a ticket at Rafz and a local one at SH Bhf but it still was lots cheaper than usual
