In summary: it's cheaper to simply transport your bicycle in your car.
Parking alone for me is CHF 1940,- a year, that is a lot of public transport

in summary, it is cheaper not to transport your bike but instead ride it to wherever you need to be.

Re: Fare for travelling with bicycle with ZVV S-Bahn

I know this is an old question... but for me (last weekend) it was still a valid one and the answers here (and the offical website) still left us confused. So I reached out to the SSB Twitter account for an answer:
https://twitter.com/mountainash/stat...59001990213632

I still don't have an answer on why it's called a "short distance" ticket?

But for others, just get a ticket for yourself and then a half fare for your bike. If the half fare is going to cost more than 14 CHF, get a day pass for your bike instead.

(sorry for the poor image resolution - but this site/forum doesn't allow anything larger)

Re: Fare for travelling with bicycle with ZVV S-Bahn

I agree, SBB mentioning "short-distance" trips in their website is definitely not clear. Maybe the meaning is that for long travels a day pass is more convenient? The definition of "short" and "long" would then be fare-based.

Also, in Zurich there is another type of "short-distance" ticket (Kurzstrecke) which is a cheaper ticket that only allows one to ride for a few stops instead than one hour; each vending machine can provide information on the valid stretches according to its location.
