Buying Swiss Tix

Since Switzerland is the best country in the world (at least according to its residents), they have the best ticket purchasing system for their trains. On this point, I think I have to agree.

If you’re planning an extended visit, download the SBB Mobile app for your phone and book your train tickets that way. All you need to do is enter your credit card number and you’re good to go. You can browse itineraries and connections, and then purchase an electronic ticket that’s immediately downloaded to your phone!

    Dang. Norway and Switzerland, and the rest of Europe are years ahead of the US in transportation and integration with mobile phones. We are seeing the same trend in medical devices with exUS countries taking the lead in integrating mobile phones and healthcare. I’m really enjoying the blog. Keep posting!
