>> Hi, for the Bernina Express, there is a bus section ( Lugano to Tirano), and a train section ( Tirano to Chur). However, I understand the bus service only operates during summer. Is there any alternative transportation for one to travel from Lugano to Tirano in March?
It seems they have extended the season during which the Bernina Express bus runs in 2018, which will be good news for early and late season travellers.
The Bernina Express bus will run in each direction from Thursday to Sunday during the early season (15 Feb to 1 Apr) and late season (1 Nov to 25 Nov 2018). During the peak season (2 Apr to 28 Oct), the bus will run daily.
So you can use the Bernina Express bus if you are travelling on a Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday in March. If you are not travelling on one of those days, use the Swiss Timetable to find an alternative route. It will most likely involve some travel in Italy which is not covered by the Swiss Travel Pass.
