If you are interested in renting a bike, a bike rental office can be found (at street level) just behind the travel bureau.
Most trains arrive at street level, One level down you’ll find luggage lockers, while going down again brings you to the shopping level. S-Bahn suburban trains leave from the lowest level to local destinations such as Uetliberg and Adliswil. Trains from these platforms to nearby towns such as Winterthur and Baden are slower than the intercity trains that leave from the main platforms above, but depart more frequently.
