Public transport

The City of Bern has an extensive public transport network with different tram and bus lines.

Buying a ticket

Tickets for Bern public transport can be bought at machines and in the LIBERO shop at Bern main station. No tickets are sold on buses and trams. In addition to the normal tickets, and the multiple journey tickets, Bernmobil also sells short journey tickets at a more affordable price. The ticket ma-chines at the tram and bus stops show which routes the short journey ticket is valid for.

Bern Ticket inclusive for overnight visitors
Overnight visitors don’t need to worry about tickets in Bern. From your first overnight stay in tourist accommodation in the city, you will receive a Bern Ticket for your whole stay. This lets you travel for free in zones 100/101 operated by LIBERO. The Bern Ticket also includes the Gurten funicular, the Marzilibahn funicular and the lift to Bern’s cathedral platform, as well as your journey to and from Bern Airport. On the day you arrive in Bern, your reservation confirmation counts as a transfer ticket from the train station or Bern Airport to where you are staying. You will be given your Bern Ticket when you check in. It is only valid if fully filled in. If asked, please show your ticket to the ticket in-spector.

Bern on foot
Due to its compact size, Bern’s city center can be explored on foot. And you won’t need an umbrella to explore the UNESCO World Heritage site; the arcades provide shelter from the rain, and shade on hot days. Bern Tourism offers guided tours through the old town.

Dank der überschaubaren Grösse kann die Berner Innenstadt gut zu Fuss erkundet werden. Und für die Besichtigung des UNESCO-Weltkulturerbes braucht es nicht einmal einen Regenschirm: Die Lauben (Arkaden) schützen Besucherinnen und Besucher von Regen und spenden an heissen Tagen Schatten. Bern Tourismus bietet Führungen durch die Altstadt an.
