"Never Miss the Train Again"

Reviewed by / Feb 24, 2015

Buy tickets, check the schedule, stay on track!

THE VERDICT

The SBB Mobile app lets you check Switzerland's train schedule. You can check stations, look at time tables, and even purchase tickets for up to eight people at a time. The app even has a take me home feature, which uses GPS to show you the quickest train route home including times, stations, and switches.

THE PROS

The app gives you the ability to purchase tickets and check schedules.

THE CONS

The app sometimes has glitches with purchasing tickets.

    1. Selecting transportation mode filters is very very clunky. For example, specifying ship-only requires a dozen taps. 2.

Eg. Thun --> Ittigen, Pulverstutz (3) The app does not store the name/date of birth of frequent tra
