>> I've checked online there's only 1 seat left in Coach 1. I will travel with my wife, may I ask if it's possible that Express Bus will have Coach 2 on 15 Jun 2018 after Coach 1 is full.
I don't think so. If you try to reserve 2 seats now, it doesn't roll over to another coach, so my guess is that that's the last available seat for that date. But you could keep trying over the next few days and see what happens.
>> besides that Express Bus, are there other transportation can take us to Lugano on 15 Jun 18. thank you.
According to the Swiss Timetable, it seems the only other option to get from Tirano to Lugano is to backtrack by train to Thusis and get the PostBus from Thusis to Bellinzona (reservations compulsory and free), then train to Lugano. That will add an extra 6-7 hours journey time to your day.
Another alternative you have is to forget about the Bernina Express for this day, and get the Palm Express PostBus from St Moritz to Lugano instead. That is a very scenic bus trip, especially going down the Maloja Pass, through the Bregaglia Valley and along the shores of Lake Como and Lake Lugano.
The Palm Express Postbus runs once daily from St Moritz at 12:20 and reservations are compulsory (and free). You can make reservations here:
If you are spending long enough in St Moritz, you could do a return trip on the Bernina Express between St Moritz and Tirano another day.
