The Swiss Travel Pass offers Unlimited Travel
by Train, Bus, Boat and City Transportation

The more you plan to use Public Transport the better off you are buying one of the Swiss Travel Pass options. I love the fact that one can hop on the train, the tram or city bus, take a postal bus or a boat without having to run around for tickets. What's more, you get tons of additional bonuses. If you plan to use the train extensively, this is for you.
