Travel in switzerland for kids under 5 years

Hi Team,

Do you guys have any idea for train ticket cost of kids under 5 years for travel in switzerland. Is that same price of an adult or something else.

Thanks for your help.

Thanks,
Mainak

Children under 6 always travel free if accompanied by an adult. The junior card is for children aged 6 - 16.

Junior card the child aged 6-16 must be accompanied by a parent.

If they are not accompanied by a parent, they pay the 'half' fare....

Re: Travel in switzerland for kids under 5 years

I would imagine it's rare to have a child under 6 travel unaccompanied on public transport. The local kindergarten kids walk to school...
