After study related info I have come to the understanding that the Swiss half fare card does not cover cable cars operated by quite a lot of companies. Specifically I will be taking cable car rides in the following area in the forthcoming trip in September :

Engstligenalp ( e/s/tarife)

Adelboden ( ts )

Niederhorn ( rices/#anchor_dda92a11 _Accordion-1-Single-tickets )

Bettmerhorn / Eggishorn ( bleways/tickets-prices/single-trips/)

The fee is on the expensive side. May I know if there are any passes that cover all the mentioned cable car services ?

Hi Swissfans,

The Sillerenbahn is indeed not discounted with the Swiss Half Fare Card, but all others are. Many cable car companies are private companies, but that's not really relevant for travelers. You'd best check the map for what's covered: isshalffarecard/validi ty

Quite is lot is discounted, but indeed not all cable cars around Switzerland.

Enjoy your trips!

Hi Swissfans-

<<"The fee is on the expensive side.">>

It is, by " normal" standards, but it costs a lot to build, maintain and run those cableways safely.
