Transportation in Zurich


As with the trams, Zurich's bus network runs from the early morning until midnight and is clean, modern and easy to navigate. Don't forget to buy your ticket at the Haltestelle (bus/tram stop) vending machines before boarding.


Fiercely expensive, Zurich taxis can be hard to find and do serious damage to your bank balance. With the city's great public transport network, cycle paths and walkable areas, taxis should be only a last resort.


Zurich's quays are ideal for exploring on foot, and many of the city's major attractions, such as the Altstadt (old town), are conveniently clustered close to both banks of the Limmat River.

Rent your car

Clean, modern highways link Zurich to the rest of Switzerland and other parts of Europe. The best parking option is to buy a daily parking permit for residential blue-zone areas or for long-term parking, you can opt for the airport and use the efficient public transport system.
