The last days of December have arrived. While most of us are busy with the end-of-the-year season, 2022 is already beckoning with thrilling news regarding Swiss public transport. Here’s a rundown.

Brochures 2022.

We proudly present: the Swiss Travel System Map 2022 – fresh from the press! It shows travellers the most important information around public transport and the tourist country Switzerland. The map is initially available in German, English, French, Italian and Portuguese. Language versions for the Asian markets are to follow.

All Swiss Travel System tickets now refer to, a site that offers the guests a navigable area of validity map. Also, the site features all benefits of the Swiss Travel Pass at a glance. It replaces the physical “Swiss Travel Pass area of validity and benefits”.
The Sales Manual 2022 will be published in January in digital format.


Swiss Travel System Excellence Program.

Heidi & Peter thank you for a successful first year.


In the ten months since the launch, more than 4’500 users have already registered for the Swiss Travel System Excellence Program. There is still time until 31 December 2021 to “learn” yourself towards the main prize: the first five on the leaderboard are rewarded with a trip to Switzerland. Heidi and Peter will be on the road in Switzerland for a few days around the New Year to check out the newest public transport adventures. The e-learning platform will be back online at the beginning of January.

Bernina Express. 
New surcharges & gift.
As of March 2022, the Bernina Express surcharge will not only include the seat reservation, but also an exclusive gift for every passenger: an ice tea with herbs from the Valposchiavo and sweet Lindt chocolate heaerts in a beautiful Bernina Express Box. The surcharge is therefore increased by CHF 10.
Further details
Grand Train Tour of Switzerland.
An ideal combination.

Swiss Travel Pass and Grand Train Tour? It’s a match! From eight different travel suggestions, the perfect route for every customer’s wish can be put together – all of it covered by the Swiss Travel Pass (excluding surcharges for premium panoramic trains).

Magellan Awards.
Silver for the Excellence Program.

The Swiss Travel System Excellence Program has been awarded the silver medal at the 2021 Magellan Awards in the category online travel services. Already earlier this year, we were very pleased to accept a German "Comenius" seal. We take great pride in these two prizes – not least because they validate the interactive, story-based approach of our program.
