Me, my husband and my 1,5 baby boy with be spending 15 day vacation on Switzerland moving around with Swiss Pass Flex. I wonder how easy - or difficult - it is to carry baby’s stroller inside trains/buses. Are there stairs/steps that can make a stroller a bad choice to carry our baby around?
Welcome to MySwissAlps.
Don't worry, Swiss trains have a reputation for being stroller and wheelchair-friendly. There are low-floor (platform level) coaches on trains and buses to allow easy boarding for strollers and wheelchair users. On some trains, you can even find coaches designated for families with small kids (these are usually Intercity double decker trains). Train stations generally have ramps or lifts.

I travelled with my 4 year old with a stroller, and I don’t remember having any issues... it would be best if you choose a light weight stroller which can easily be fold and unfold would be great..
Thank you Anna!
That's what I wanted to know!
Thanks for the tip!
Hi Anacpoli2, we used to have a big stroller and we usually tried to get the first chairs on the train, closest to the doors and we left our baby buggy in the beginning of the trains - at the entrance but making sure that it disturbed no one. It was never ever touched or stollen by anyone, but of course we did not leave any values (or child) in it. :) For us, a baby carrier (on the back) was the best solution because hiking and walking were easier with it.
