A great way to commute – at a discount for ETH members!

The PubliBike special offer is proving popular, with more than 3,000 ETH members signing up each year. In order to ensure quality of service and availability, we need to raise the price of the ETH annual pass slightly. As ETH is continuing to sponsor the station on the Hönggerberg campus, you still benefit from a reduced rate. The Business Bike subscription will cost CHF 70 per year as of 01.07.2021.

The app makes it quick and convenient to hire bikes and e-bikes. You'll find a number of stations around ETH Zentrum, and one on the Hönggerberg campus. Discounts will continue to apply.
