Transportation

 

General Information

 

The ZVV (Zurich Verkehrsverbund) runs all public transportation within the canton of Zurich.

The cantonal network is divided into zones. Zurich city is Zone 110 and Zurich airport is Zone 121.

In order to travel from Zurich airport to the city or to the Rob|Arch 2018 conference venue, you will need to get a ticket valid for both zones. If you arrive to Zurich Main Station via train, a Zone 110 ticket will cover your trip between the city and the Rob|Arch 2018 conference venue, as well as all other trips within the city. Tickets are available either as single (1 hour) or day tickets (24 hours) which are recommended for multiple trips within the day.

You can get tickets from SBB (Swiss Federal Railways) counters at Zurich Main Station or Zurich Airport as well as from ticket machines at bus and tram stops around the city.
