Be mobile with TWINT: from train journeys to parking

Effective immediately, SBB customers can pay with TWINT. It is now possible to purchase tickets and services with Switzerland’s leading payment app on the SBB Mobile app as well as at SBB ticket machines and online. TWINT will thus become the preferred payment method for almost all forms of mobility. In addition to the SBB, TWINT payments can be made with BLS, Lezzgo and Fairtiq and now also at many parking meters.

TWINT is now also saved as a payment method for SBB Mobile, the number one mobility app. 'The SBB is thus meeting this growing customer need,' writes the SBB. It is also possible to make TWINT payments at SBB ticket machines and online at From mid-2019, it is planned that the SBB travel centres will also be equipped for the acceptance of TWINT payments. Many customers prefer to make use of the possibility to have payments debited directly to their bank account.

TWINT can therefore not only be used at the majority of retail businesses, in many restaurants and cafés as well as with most e-commerce merchants, but is now also a popular payment method in the area of mobility. In addition to the SBB, TWINT has also been integrated by BLS, Lezzgo and Fairtiq as well as other mobility providers. Furthermore, it is already possible to pay for more than 50,000 parking spaces across Switzerland with TWINT (Functions/Parking).

'Paying for mobility with Switzerland’s most widely used payment app makes sense. Many of our customers are also of the same opinion. We want to meet this need and are currently looking at also permitting TWINT on other channels,’ explains Alberto Bottini, Head of Sales, Services and Marketing at the SBB.

For Markus Kilb, CEO of TWINT, the step taken by the SBB is an important one: ‘TWINT is thus also developing into the leading mobile payment solution across the entire mobility sector. Whether for train passengers, car drivers, bike riders or pedestrians: TWINT is as mobile as their chosen form of mobility. Be this with the SBB or BLS, at a petrol station or paying for a parking space without coins. TWINT is Switzerland’s digital cash.’
