>> If I buy a Swiss Travel Pass, can I use it for my train ride from Innsbruck
If you go all the way from Innsbruck to Switzerland by train, then you need a ticket to the Swiss border (Buchs SG), and then the Swiss Travel Pass will cover you the rest of the way to St Moritz.
If you go via Martina, you only need a separate ticket for the sector between Innsbruck and Landeck-Zams, which is about a 45 minute trip. The Swiss Travel Pass will cover you all the way from Landeck-Zams to St Moritz.
The route via Martina is:
1. Innsbruck to Landeck-Zams - train (ticket required)
2. Landeck-Zams to Scuol-Tarasp by PostBus (with a change of bus at "Martina, cunfin") - covered by Swiss Travel Pass
3. Scuol-Tarasp to St Moritz by train (with a change of train at Samedan) - covered by Swiss Travel Pass.
I have attached a screenshot from the Swiss Travel Pass validity map showing the route.
The option including the PostBus is quicker, but has more changes. However, they are not difficult changes. The PostBus stop at Landeck-Zams is just outside the station; the buses at Martina stop next to each other; the bus stop at Scuol is right outside the station; and the change at Samedan just means crossing from one side of the platform to the other. This is also a very scenic route. PostBuses have a compartment under the bus for luggage.
