With FAIRTIQ you don’t have to buy a ticket in advance, indicate your destination or struggle to find the right zone. You will always be charged the best available price, once you have completed your journey. It doesn't matter how often you switch directions, or even if you change between trains, buses and trams. With FAIRTIQ there are no hassles, no complications, just smooth and easy travel at fair prices!

How it works

Shortly before boarding a vehicle, such as train, bus, tram or boat, simply swipe the "Start" button in the FAIRTIQ app. Your final destination does not need to be entered.
If a conductor requests ticket validation, click the "Show ticket" button and the QR code will automatically be displayed in the app.
Once you have arrived at your destination, swipe the "Stop" button in FAIRTIQ. The optimised cost for your trip is then displayed in the app.

Area of validity

> Switzerland and Liechtenstein
You can travel throughout the entire GA route network. FAIRTIQ computes for you the best available fare for your journey. Travel for example by train with SBB between Zurich and Bern, by postbus to Verbier, by bus in St. Gallen, by tram in Geneva, or a combination of everything!

> Vorarlberg (Austria)
You can use FAIRTIQ with all busses and trains for trips in the whole Vorarlberg as well as in the combi tariff with LIEmobil (Liechtenstein).

> Göttingen (Germany)
You can use FAIRTIQ for your trips on the urban network. The price is computed based on the "GÖVB-Luftlinientarif" (beeline tariff).

> Linz (Austria)
You can use FAIRTIQ in the central travel zone of Linz, including the city’s Pöstlingbergbahn (cable car network). Only the regional bus network and the tram network run by the Upper Austrian Transport Authority are not covered.

> Halle (Saale, Germany)
You can use FAIRTIQ in the city of Halle (MDV-Tariff zone 210). However it is not yet possible to travel in the rest of the Mitteldeutsche Verkehrsverbund (MDV).

Do not use blindly

The concept of this app is really cool. Turn it on, get on a bus, train, etc. and get the bill at the end of the day, adapting to the best ticket fare.

The best ticket fare, really? Well, you better check that before, not to get bad surprises.

For long time, it existed only a few types of price fares for train in Switzerland, but now it exist half a dozen if not more. Specially, a new super-reduced ticket is available for specific trains, which you have to check.

I wrote to FAIRTIQ asking if their system would recognise when a specific ride offers the super reduced price and I got no answer. Which means no... As the super-reduced ticket is 50% cheaper, there is little chance you get the best price using this app.

So compare prices for the ride you are considering beforehand.

Could be nice if only...

Very good idea, but I couldn't use it as they don't accept Amex. Worse: they don't accept ApplePay. This is ridiculous not to use built-in payment options.

Developer Response ,

Dear customer, we charge users after the trips around 4 AM. Unfortunately "Apple Pay" does not work for this use case. Best regards - the FAIRTIQ team
