Zurichsee ferry to city centre

Hello,

Is there any ferry service on Zurichsee from silver coast (say Au, Thalwil, Ruschlikon etc) to Zurich city centre, which could be used instead of train to commute?
I just thought that it might be nice during summer and perhaps late spring or early autumn.

BTW. I had a look on the google maps and cannot see anything, so just wanted to double check with you guys.

If by ferry you mean a "boat" then yes. If you mean a Faehre, as in a boat that a car can go onto then no. The only Fähre moves between Horgen and Meilen.

I meant water tram, river bus or boat allowing to commute to city centre.

Buerkliplatz is near enough I‘d say?

Re: Zurichsee ferry to city centre

There is also the Gipfelischiff (Croissant boat)
https://www.gipfelischiff.ch/fahrplan/

This was once a beloved daily regular run, but now privately organised a few days during summer only.

The earliest regular boat to Bürkliplatz leaves Thalwil around 9 am. More choice in the evening.

PS: The ZVV network ticket includes nearly all modes of public transport including trams, trains, buses, boats, two funiculars, a cogwheel train, and a cable car.

Re: Zurichsee ferry to city centre

zvv.ch - enter "Buerkliplatz, Schiffst." as destination and your location.

It is really not that difficult unless you want to debate what a ferry is.

Re: Zurichsee ferry to city centre

You might find zsg.ch more specific than the ZVV website. Enjoy the ride!
