After looking at the half fare card I begin to believe that the half fare card is a better option for us. We are going to stay in Lugano, Switzerland for a month in July and I am trying to save for students. We have several major trips: round trip between Zurich and Lugano, Interlaken, Lucerne and Lugano, Montreux and Lugano, possible boat cruise on Lake Thur, Lake Lugano and Lake Geneva. Many local in-city transit and day trips taking trains. The half fare of those easily exceeds 120. Our themes will be mountains and castles, not so much with museums. Castles ask for admission in general but they tend to range around $10.
This forum is super helpful. I have a new question though. I become really interested in adding the Bernina Express since we have the bus connecting Lugano to the express in summer. The round trip fare is $379. Does the half fare card apply to the Bernina Express as well?
