EasyRide

Iím in London. I have a SwissPass 1/2 abonnement. I havenít been in Switzerland since 30 August 2020. I arrive tomorrow with my British/Swiss grandson to stay at our flat in Calais for a week before we return to London and he starts H5/CE2 at his French school. I have added his name to my CFF app. If I turn on EasyRide does that mean the two of us can just jump on a train, change trains somewhere, and get off our local shuttle without being accused of fare jumping? EasyPass didnít exist last time I took a train. I kept my abonnement even though at my great age I was afraid to travel (but now have 2x Pfizer, grandson had nothing. My doctor in Valais says he can test us for the return to London 1st September.

I have hardly left the house in a year. What do ai know. I do have proof of settled status for the return & grandson has both passports.

Help.

Re: EasyRide

From the SBB website

Can I use EasyRide for additional passengers?
No. At present, EasyRide can only be used for the main user who is logged in, in accordance with the general terms of business. It is not possible to enter other passengers, dogs or bicycles. Please buy tickets for your companions in the usual way via the app.

Re: EasyRide

Just get the Fairtiq app. One travels on EasyRide, the other on Fairtiq. The SBB app is based on Fairtiq. You can have both running on the same phone.

Re: EasyRide

Or,do as they suggest just buy your tickets on the CFF app. You can have two tickets on the app. Unless you buy a supersaver ticket you can travel on any train/bus the same day on the route.

And I assume you meant Valais, not Calais.

Re: EasyRide

OK thanks. I've bought tickets for the Chocolate train for the kiddie & myself, and I see there no discounts to be had on the run to Montreux so will buy those on the CFF app which I have the morning of. I have told my 8 yo grandson absolutely not to answer to officialdom if they ask what his relationship to me is, that he never saw this old geezer before and has no idea. Actually he speaks native French so they would believe him more than me.

Re: EasyRide

I see you've already bought your tickets. If you're going to be in Switzerland for a while, you might consider the following travelcard(s).
