SBB App - Dog

Re: SBB App - Dog

Iíve figured it out - just after posting. Duh!

Just put in the route you are travelling. Select tickets. Open ďmore ticketsĒ option and dog day pass is there (as is bike pass). I assume if travelling a short journey, you just buy another 1/2 fare ticket in your name.

Re: SBB App - Dog

Apparently SBB now allow you to buy a GA for your dog at a much cheaper price - something like 350 instead of 800 but itís no longer transferable and is linked to your own Swiss Pass which is catching people out.

Yeah and the kids get a seat - unlike the dog who pays!

Re: SBB App - Dog

I assume you’re in quarantine and the dog is travelling alone?

Re: SBB App - Dog

You can't buy a ticket for the dog on the app. You can buy a day pass, but that's the same as a ticket. You can buy a 1/2 ticket at terminal at the station. The conductors are usually forgiving if you don't get the dog pass and get help you get it on the train. I bought the annual pass for CHF 360 in the end.

Canít you add your dog as a second passenger and buy a ticket that way?

Re: SBB App - Dog

Can't add dog as second passenger. I tried. Basically it asks for age and the dog is less than 6 and passengers less than 6 are free. So it's not the same.

Donít forget dog years are not the same as human years If you can do it for a bike you can sure do it for other things like a dog. You just need to make sure you end up with the right price ticket.
