Absolutely fantastic! Better than any commercial guide for the area it covers. Thank you so much!
One observation: the half fare card trumps the Swiss card if the return transfer journey (into and out of the area where you are staying, e.g. from an airport) is less than CHF 158 (which is double the difference in price between the two cards).
Also bear in mind that you cannot use the Swiss card to cover the full fare on the scenic Golden Pass route (with its panorama coaches if you choose the right departure time) from Interlaken to Geneva, as it is not 'the most direct route'. However this could be an option for travellers returning via Geneva, for example, effectively allowing them to extend their holiday by up to a day, by making the return journey a special extra event in itself. You could get half price on this route with the Swiss card I think, and forrfeit the 100% discount for a return 'transfer' journey at the end of your stay, but then it makes even more sense to buy the cheaper half price card instead.
