The Post Bus – Through and Over the Alps by Bus

For the non Swiss it looks a little strange: in the middle of the breathtaking landscape of the Swiss mountains (and of course valleys) you keep seeing yellow busses that look a little displaced.  We are talking about the very easy to see yellow painted busses, the Swiss Post busses, called PostAuto.

Additionally to the Swiss railways, the Swiss Post bus (PostAuto) also offers a special journey.  Over 2,500 employees ensure the smooth transport for the PostAuto company, for more than 300,000 commuters and tourists daily.

With a network of over 10,000 kilometres of routes and over 2,000 busses for passenger transport, is the PostAuto the second most important method of public transport after Swiss Rail.  The busses are not only used by inhabitants to get to work and back, but also by tourists, who have discovered the PostAuto as a cheap and wonderful alternative to discover the Swiss landscape for themselves.

Some of the particularly pretty bus tours, for example the Palm Express (St. Moritz – Lugano), the Ticino Route Express (Oberwald – Nufenpass – Airolo – Gotthardpass – Andermatt) are often requested by tourists from the region and also from overseas.

TIP: People in possession of the Swiss Pass, or the Swiss Flexi Pass, can travel with the PostAuto free of charge.
