Zurich Travel Guide

Getting Around Zurich

Zurich is easy to navigate, and a modern, user-friendly network of trams and buses covers the city daily from 5.30am to midnight. Transport works on a zone system, and tickets are valid for an hour. Tickets are transferable but must be bought before boarding and validated immediately; they are also valid on some boats and local city trains. The most useful travel pass is the (one day ticket) that allows travel on all buses and trams for 24 hours. Night buses depart from Bellevue hourly from 1am to 3am on Fridays and Saturdays. Travelling by taxi is expensive even by Swiss standards, but they are safe and convenient and can be hailed on the street, found at taxi ranks or ordered by phone. Getting around by car is not recommended due to congestion and expensive or scarce parking. From May to October, bicycles can be hired free from various stations, though a deposit of one''s ID and a small fee is required.
