<<"Thanks for your detailed response. We would go from Aeschau Dorf to Zurich on 2 May early morning. Even our host confirmed that the nearest bus stop is Aeschau Dorf and she would pick us up.">>
Could she return you to Langnau?">>
Langnau is about the same distance as Signau, over rather small roads, but the stop at Aeschau is much closer than either one The only reason to ask about Langnau is that there are more early AM train services than at Signau. But, if your pass is already expired, perhaps you do not have to get up so early....At 4 or 5 AM, there might be no one awake to provide the "breakfast" in your B&B, let alone, drive you to the station. I'd expect their normal hours to start at maybe 0730 +/-.
I did not understand your logic that an early AM trip on May 2 would still be covered on your Swiss Travel Pass...I thought your pass expired on the day before....meaning your journey would have to be started before midnight on the day before (on the last day of your pass validity) in order for the pass to be used until 5AM.
As Annika says -
<<"The 5 AM rule is not new. It indeed works like that to allow you to complete late night trips.">>
<<"In this example, an 8-day Swiss Travel Pass can be used for traveling on
July 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21 and 22. Validity ends on 5:00 AM of the
day following the last day, so that allows you to complete late night
trips, even after midnight. In this example, validity ends on July 23,
I interpret that to mean that you must be on the train before midnight on the 1st.
Perhaps Annika can clarify her comments? It is quite possible that I did not interpret it correctly.
