If you cannot check-in, we recommend you to try the following procedure:
- check if the GPS data is accurate on Maps/Google Maps
- check if your internet data are working on Safari/Chrome
- completely close FAIRTIQ
- open the app and try again.
Have you ensured that your phone complies to FAIRTIQ's app usage requirements available on this page: Using FAIRTIQ: Requirements?
Network issue or check-in unsuccessful
Your phone does not have access to the internet. Some reasons are:
- (Frequent on iPhone in Swiss train stations) Your phone might have connected to a public WIFI network that requires authentification (e.g. SBB-FREE, PostAuto). The fastest workaround is to deactivate WIFI or "forget this network".
- FAIRTIQ does not have access to mobile data.
- You currently have no data coverage.
To solve the issue, try to switch from Wifi to Mobile Data (and vice-versa).
No stations nearby / searching for stations
Your phone is restricting FAIRTIQ to access your location. Some reasons are:
- Location is off or hidden. Make sure that access to your location is active and was granted to FAIRTIQ "always".
- On iPhone, you need to ensure that your phone's clock is set automatically by the system, as FAIRTIQ does not support delayed data.
- On Android, please refer to Solving location issue on Android.
If the check-in remains impossible, please contact us via the app.
However, be careful: You are responsible to make sure that the trip has correctly been started before boarding the vehicle. If FAIRTIQ has not been correctly activated, you DO NOT OWN a valid ticket & must acquire a ticket via alternative channels.
