Hi jigneshmehta. Thanks for joining MySwissAlps!

The Swiss Pass is only for Swiss citizens. What you need is the Swiss Travel Pass. As for your questions:

  1. Lugano to Chiasso is covered. Please see www.myswissalps.com/ swisstravelpass/ validity for what else is included. You need a ticket for Italy: www.myswissalps.com/ traintickets/italy.
  2. Sorry, I don't understand what you mean.

Hello,

I would like to know how I can travel from Lugano to Milan via Chiasso route using Swiss Travel Pass. I am not sure up to what station Swiss travel pass will work and I have to buy separate ticket from what point onwards.

Hi jegnesthmehta!

Did you check the validity map I linked to and combine this with the timetable? As you'll see, the coverage area ends in Chiasso, so you'll need an additional ticket Chiasso-Milan.
