Cross-border annual travelcard

The cross-border annual travelcard is the ideal solution for all those who regularly cross the border and would like to benefit from the convenience of a single ticket which for the canton of Ticino and the Lombardy region. 

With the Arcobaleno cross-border annual travelcard, you can travel across the border between Italy and Switzerland with a single ticket, which is valid on all modes of transport on the Arcobaleno integrated fare network as well as on all Trenord regional and suburban trains. 

The Arcobaleno cross-border annual travelcard is inexpensive and practical.

The cross-border annual travelcard is also personal. It can be issued to adults (from 25 years) in 1st or 2nd class as well as for young persons (from 6 to 25 years) in 2nd class and is valid for the selected zones. The price for the cross-border travelcard is calculated from the Arcobaleno zone prices (for the Swiss section) and the Italian fare per kilometre (for the section in Lombardy) added together. 

  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.
