Local arrangements in Zürich

Getting to Zurich

Most of you will probably arrive by plane. The Zurich Airport has an underground train-station, and the best way to get into town is to take the train either to Zurich main station (Zürich HB) or ­– since the MOLTO meeting will take place in the part of Zurich called Oerlikon – to the train-station Zürich Oerlikon. You can buy tickets for the trains at Zurich Airport either at a counter or at ticket-machines.

Please note: Though Zurich is a safe place there can be pickpockets at the airport and at Zurich main station who like to grab your bag while you are busy buying a ticket.

Getting around in Zurich

Public transport in Zurich and in the region of Zurich is divided into zones. The city of Zurich is zone 10 that counts price-wise as two zones. With your ticket you can use any means of transport within Zurich (tram, bus, train, boat, cable-car, ...). The most convenient ticket is the day pass that allows you to use the public transport system for 24 hours after buying the ticket: costs CHF 8.20. Tickets can be bought at ticket-offices and ticket-machines – but not within the cars. Make sure that you travel with a valid ticket, because being caught without a ticket is very expensive.
