Zone rather than route
The zone system applies for all ABO zigzag travelcards in the entire area of the Biel-Grenchen-Seeland-Bernese Jura fare network. The zone plan shows you how many adjoining zones (areas) you must pay for to go from A to B.
Irrespective of whether you are travelling by train, bus or funicular – all types of public transport are included in the price of the zones you have paid for within the period of validity.
Outside the network area
For journeys beyond the borders of the network, network tickets are only valid up to the last timetabled stop within the zones purchased.
The network tickets are not valid in SBB trains that do not stop in the zones paid for.
