>> visit to Switzerland planned for late May, first two weeks June ... What about scenic postbus routes? ... Another day get off train in Meiringen ... see what bus routes leave from there.
Are you looking for scenic PostBus routes leaving from Meiringen?
The major scenic PostBus route from Meiringen is the Vierpässefahrt (Four Passes trip), but you are a bit early for it, as it runs 23 June–14 October 2018.
However, you can do the first section of that route, just as far as the Grimsel Pass. The route is Meiringen, Bahnhof to Grimsel Passhöhe (top of the Grimsel Pass). This service, Bus #161, starts up after the winter break on 9 June, and there are only two departures a day (9:25 and 13:25), arriving at the top of the pass at 10:29 and 14:29 respectively. Return trips to Meiringen from Grimsel Passhöhe are at 11:30 and 15:56. If interested, you can read about it at the beginniing of my trip report on the following page:
The bus from Meiringen to Grindelwald over the Grosse Scheidegg (and return) will start up again from 19 May 2018. From 19 May–1 June, there are 4 departures a day in each direction. The number of services per day increases from 2 June. The route is Meiringen, Bahnhof to Grindelwald, Bahnhof via Grosse Scheidegg. I have written a trip report about this trip if you are interested:
