Configuration

"Auto Add Stop"

The SBB toolbar can automatically add stops and relations you searched for to the mySBB stop and relation lists.

To enable this feature, click on the SBB logo on the left and choose "Automatically add stops".

This will hide the mySBB links on the result page (since the stops are automatically added).

If you do not enable this feature, only stops and relations you added yourself to mySBB will be displayed in the stop drop-downs.

Customize toolbars

You are free to customize the two SBB toolbars ("SBB Timetable Search" and "Advanced SBB Timetable Search").

To do this, ensure the advanced toolbar is visible by clicking on the ">>" icon (the window has to be small enough, otherwise the advanced bar is not shown). Then right-click on a toolbar and choose "Customize...". Now you can move the items between the two toolbars or even away from any of the toolbars.

Different result page (obsolete)

Warning: this feature is not officially supported and may change with future releases.

If you would like to have the result page in another language (e.g. your Firefox is in English but you would like to see the search results in German), you can set the config "sbbtt.search.url" to the correct URL (e.g. "http://fahrplan.sbb.ch/bin/query.exe/dn?").

To add a config parameter in Firefox, type about:config in the location bar and press enter. Now right-click and choose "New > String". Enter the config name (i.e. "sbbtt.search.url") and after pressing "OK", enter the value (i.e. "http://fahrplan.sbb.ch/bin/query.exe/dn?").

TODOs

  • Give a simple way to edit the time (e.g. an analog clock)
  • Possibility to search return journey
  • Make shortcut (Ctrl-Shift-S) configurable
