Public transportation


The Swiss railway network is very dense and trains are convenient and punctual. The Federal Railways (SBB, Schweizerische Bundes Bahn) crisscross the country and connect to mountain railways, lake ferries and postal buses. All trains between Lucerne and Zurich stop in the city Zug, which makes travelling to any Swiss location very fast and easy.

Tickets can be bought at the station from the ticket Office, at a ticket machine before you get on the Train or online. Ticket machines give instructions in four languages, including English. As traveling by train can become quite expensive if you buy regular, full-price tickets, it is worth looking into the various opportunities to obtain reduced rates. Ask at the station or check on the SBB website (available in four languages).

Bus and boat transportation
The Canton of Zug has an extensive public transport service that also covers the surrounding areas. The Zug Public Transport Organization (ZVB) is responsible for the bus and boat transportation system in the canton. The urban transportation system operates between 6 am and 12 pm on a frequent schedule. A cog railway ("Zuger Bergbahn") brings you to the top of the mountain of Zug ("Zugerberg").

A night train (the Nightbird) runs between Lucerne and Zurich, and a night bus ("Zuger Nachtexpress") connects all eleven communities during the small hours. See www.sbb.ch/nightbird for the schedule.
