I am flying into Basel. From there, I will take the bus to the train station and then the train to Muerren (i.e. to Interlaken Ost, Lauterbrunnen, and then Muerren). I believe this train route passes through Bern?

I will have the Berner Oberland Regional Pass which is valid from Bern on. My question is, do I just purchase a ticket from Basel to Bern, get on a train that is bound for Interlaken Ost, and then when we reach Bern, the BORP kicks in? Do I have to get off the train in Bern? Or, do I just show my purchased ticket in Basel, and then whip out the BORP in Bern when asked for my ticket?

Thanks so much for your help.

Hello E,

You need a ticket from Basel Euroairport to Bern. Some trains go Basel SBB to Interlaken direct some change at Spiez. Unlikely you would need to change at Bern. Just show your ticket/BO Pass to inspector on train when asked. You don’t need to show anything to board.

Hi emilym,

You can use the timetable to plan the trip from Basel EuroAirport to Murren and then see where the train travels and where on the trip the Regional Pass - Bernese Oberland kicks in (which would be Bern 99 times out of 100. :) So after Bern show the rail pass when asked and before Bern show the ticket.
