Thanks to its size Basel is easily and enjoyably walkable. To get around faster you can use the dense public transport system and take the tram or bus.
The cheapest ticket (if you like to move spontaneously or just for short distances) costs CHF 2.30 and is valid for up to 4 stops (CHF 11.- if you buy the ticket valid for 6 trips). Otherwise you do well buying a ticket for zone 10 which includes almost the whole city, it costs CHF 3.80. If you plan to use public transportation all day long, you can buy a ticket called “Tageskarte”, it includes Basel and its suburbs for the price of CHF 9.50. Children from age 6 to 16 get a discount on the ticket prices. Children under the age of 6 are traveling for free.
