The only possibility to travel with TGV within Switzerland is Zürich - Bern - Neuchâtel. ICE goes Basel - Zürich and Basel - Bern - Interlaken, ICE-T Schaffhausen - Zürich, Cisalpino goes Basel - Bern - Brig, Lausanne - Brig and Schaffhausen - Zürich - Chiasso.
TGV Zürich - Bern: 07.15/08.30, B-15.45/16.57
TGV Bern - Zürich: B-12.33/13.45, 21.25/22.42
B- is daily except Saturday
CIS Basel - Bern 06.17/07.24
