An Arcobaleno ticket is the ideal solution for all those who travel in Ticino and the Moesano region, for moving around within specific zones using different modes of transport.

The integrated fare is now applied to Arcobaleno tickets too. The range includes single tickets as well as multiple-journey tickets and Multiple Day Passes, which save you time and money.

The tickets are differentiated by full price and reduced price. The reduced price applies for children from 6 years (from their 6th birthday) up to their 16th birthday, for holders of an SBB Half Fare Travelcard and for pets. 

  Zone and time system
To make it easier to use public transport, the Arcobaleno integrated fare network utilises a zone and time system. This means that all modes of transport such as buses, trains, boats, cableways and funiculars can be used within the selected zones and validity period of the ticket. There are no time restrictions for weekly, monthly and annual travelcards.
