Zurich : Public transport networks

Public Transport System

The ZVV network is a highly integrated and connected transport system. All public transport companies operate under the guidance of ZVV. There is one ticket for all types of transport services which are buses, trains, tramways and boats.
The organisation and structure of the ZVV is as follows: its 39 partners include the 2 transport authorities owned by the Swiss Confederations, the SBB and PTT, the transport systems of the towns of Zurich (VBZ) and Winterthur (SBW), and a whole series of regional and local bus companies. But in addition to this, 2 funicular cable railways belonging to the municipality of Zurich, 2 private railways that operate in the canton and 2 intercantonal railways are also integrated into the Zurich Public Transport Association. Equally, the diverse mains of public transport available include the Zürichsee Steamer Company, the Greifensee Steamer Cooperative and the Adliswil-Felsenegg Aerial Cable-Car Service. All 3 of which are principally engaged in the pleasure-trip business.
