Buses will return to normal timetable from 4 May

Public transport is expected to return to normal by 11 May. In order to meet the emerging demand, the Zugerland Transport Company (ZVB) will reintroduce the normal timetable from 4 May.

On the orders of the Federal Office of Transport (FOV), the SBB and Postauto will gradually ramp up the public transport service from 27 April to 11 May. Demand is expected to increase along with the steps to ease the restrictions communicated by the Federal Council,. According to the press release, the Zugerland Transport Authority (ZVB) will therefore reintroduce the normal timetable as early as 4 May. An exception will be the night expresses on the weekends, which remain suspended throughout Switzerland until further notice.

Protection concept for travellers being developed
The system leaders SBB and Postauto are developing a protection concept for travellers and employees, which the ZVB will support. The detailed measures are not yet known. The distance and hygiene rules prescribed by the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) remain important, so the ZVB will use vehicles that are as large as possible and will disinfect the handrails and buttons every day, according to the announcement from the ZVB. Customers are asked to refrain from excursions until further notice, so that passengers who rely on public transport can continue to travel. The ZVB would like to thank you for your support and solidarity.

The protective measures in the buses will continue. The front door will remain closed and the first row of seats will not be used. There will therefore be no ticket sales by the staff. Customers are encouraged to obtain their tickets electronically, for example via Fairtiq, or at the nearest ticket machine.
