>> will actually these tickets covers buses and cable cars?
Generally speaking, the Swiss Travel Pass covers most buses and provides a 50% discount on most cable cars.
In Grindelwald, bus #2 from Grindelwald railway station to Bodmi or Klusi, which stops at Gaggi Säge (the bus stop closest to the Youth Hostel where you will be staying), is free with the Swiss Travel Pass.
Other Grindelwald bus routes within the village are also free with the Swiss Travel Pass, but mountain routes are only discounted by 50%:
- Schwarzwaldalp route is free to Oberer Gletscher, 50% discount from Oberer Gletscher to Schwarzwaldalp.
- Bussalp and Waldspitz routes are 50% discounted.
At Wasseraun, the Wasseraun-Ebenalp cable car full-fare return tickets cost:
Adults 16 years old and over - CHF 31
Children aged 6 to 15 - CHF 12
The Swiss Travel Pass provides 50% discount on these prices
Coverage in the rest of Switzerland is shown on the Swiss Travel Pass validity map, which you can download from here:
As explained in the legend on the map, red lines are trains, yellow lines are buses, black lines are cable cars, white lines are boats. Solid lines are free, dotted lines are discounted, mostly by 50%, but only 25% in the Jungfrau region.
