Hi Rockoyster...my original guess that the funicular was covered by the STP was based on a false premise. Town to town transport is covered ( as in the bus route mentioned by Alpenrose.)
"Excursion" lines such as this privately owned and run funicular are priced at the discretion of the owners. Thus, the fare for the line up to Kleine Scheidegg from Wengen, and the line from KS to Jungfraujoch are high priced. The SBB has negotiated a25% discount for STP holders, and 50% discount for half-fare holders. Still, expensive.
In contrast- the "town to town" section of the line from Lauterbrunnen up to Wengen costs only a few CHF . It is public transport, even though it is exactly the same train that then proceeds from Wengen to KS.
So, Bürgenstock must not be a town. ;-)
