You could buy the ticket at the train/tram/bus station from the vending machines. At the central station or at the airport you could also pay with the credit card. However, you could also buy it online:

Once you have a daily or three days ticket for Zürich city you could use any transportation (tram, train, boat, bus).

You can buy day tickets for the city transport only or for the nearby area including trains. Best would be to check at the airport when you arrive - describe your travel plans to them and they can make the best suggestions.

Hi Manuela,

You can buy tickets for the tram/bus/train at the ticket offices on the main stations or at the blue machines at the tram/bus stops. You can pay with cash or card (believe it also accepts visa and MasterCard). If you stay in Zurich you can buy a 24 or 72-hour card, that will give you access to all public transportation in the Zurich area (including boat trip on the lake and gondola/cogwheel trains) as well as free or discounted access to several museums.

Hello Manuella
There are vending machines at most of the stations and most of the time you can pay by card.

For Zurich you need a ticket for tram bus and S-Bahn train before boarding, you cannot buy tickets on board. You can buy tickets at the train stations, tram stops.. get the 24 hour zone 10 pass.. this covers Zurich centre, all busses, Trams, the oolybahn funicular and some boats. You can pay cash or card. Note the airport and Uetliberg are outside of zone 10.
*Polybahn.. this funicular goes from next to Starbucks at Central, to the Polyterrasse at the university
