If I stay overnight at Tirano and bus to Lugano in the morning, are there many buses that runs this route? Do I have to make a reservation for a particular bus? I want to take the train back from Lugano to Zurich. Thank you!

Hi TONYHKLEE,

Welcome to MySwissAlps.

There is only 1 bus which travels directly from Tirano to Lugano daily. This is the Bernina Express bus (which is part of the Bernina Express panoramic route). The bus leaves Lugano at 14.20 and the journey takes about 3 hours. Seat reservation is compulsory. You can find more information here: www.myswissalps.com/berninaexpress/tickets

Regards,

Anna

Tirano - Lugano is not a regular bus route. It was created specificallly to link with the Bernina Express. Options are

1) wait for the one bus of the day

2) go by train Tirano - Monza - Lugano - Gotthard - Zurich

3) go back north on the Bernina Railway
