>> For travelling from Lugano to Interlaken in June this year, we would like to take scenic route via Gotthard Pass, Goschenen. While going through webpages we found that the bus route to Meiringen is very scenic and from Meriengen there is rail connection to Interlaken.
Are you referring to the bus trip over the Grosse Scheidegg? For this bus trip to end in Meiringen, and connect with the train to Interlaken, it has to start in Grindelwald. This is out of your way if travelling from Lugano to Interlaken Ost.
It can be done e.g. alight from the train at Meiringen, get the bus over the Grosse Scheidegg to Grindelwald, then train Grindelwald to Interlaken Ost, but would make for a very long day, with 4-6 changes along the way. I have attached a sample itinerary from the SBB timetable.
To check your options, use the advanced search in the SBB timetable. Put in Lugano as your starting point, Interlaken Ost as your destination, and Göschenen and Grosse Scheidegg as "via" stops.
If you are staying in Interlaken, the bus trip over the Grosse Scheidegg is easily done from there by first taking a short train trip to either Meiringen or Grindelwald. If you have time, I would recommend this as the better option for seeing the scenery between Meiringen and Grindelwald.
