We noticed you've posted your follow-up question on Grindelwald bus prices in a new topic, but it's easier to continue with closely related questions in the same topic. That's why we've quoted your question here, and we'll answer it here to have all information on this particular matter within one thread.
I'm not sure which prices you're quoting. The ones listed on the Grindelwald bus website apply to day trips and packages, not to regular trips within Grindelwald as far as I can see. The timetable Arno mentioned is an easier source, I think. Just enter your trip, pick a connection and click 'Fare/Buy'. Here's how to interpret the options you've encountered:
- the "1/2 Tax" or "Halbtax" is a half fare pass for Swiss residents, and results in 50% discounted prices, just as the Swiss Travel Pass does for local traveling in Grindelwald;
- "GA" means "General-Abo", a pass for Swiss residents allowing free traveling. This often results in the same coverage as the Swiss Travel Pass, and that's the price you can expect for trips outside of Grindelwald.
If you're not 100% sure in advance, don't worry: rail and bus officers at the spot will be able to tell you whether or not your Swiss Travel Pass grants free traveling and sell you a 50% discounted ticket in case it doesn't.
