The Cantonal Fund for Professional Training covers 40% of public transport costs for apprentices with in-company apprenticeship contracts.
Each apprentice is sent a letter with a voucher (Rail Check) that entitles them to a 40% discount on the purchase of an Arcobaleno “Appresfondo” annual pass (for apprentices subsidised by the fund).
In principle "Appresfondo" is a 2nd class pass. However, 1st classes passes are available on request. In this case the pass holder is directly responsible for paying the difference in cost.
"Appresfondo" passes can be obtained from AutoPostale, FART, FFS or TPL sales points by handing the Rail Check over at the counter.
The Appresfondo annual pass is nominative and loaded on the SwissPass card.
