The Zurich Transport Association (ZVV) and several other regional transit authorities are set to abolish the five franc ‘night surcharge’ for using public transport.

The change will not just apply throughout the Zurich area, with the surcharge to be abolished in Arau, Zug, Schwyz and on the Zurich to Lucerne night train. 

In agreeing to the change, the Tarifverbund Nachtzuschlag said that night public transport services should be treated just the same as other transit services and should therefore not be subject to a surcharge.

The surcharge will be abolished from December 18th, 2020. 

Currently, no night services are running due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.
