I am planning on going to Switzerland to travel and I was wondering whether I should invest in a rail card, or whether the buses are better or is there another form of Swiss transport? Maybe there are certain routes which are better by train some which are better driven? I am not sure.
Without a doubt, the train.
The public transport system is expansive and punctual. There's a variety of bus and rail passes available - some details are given here:

Yes just came back from Switzerland after christmas 26th Dec -16TH Jan...best time for travel and had most of the carriges to ourselves.I used the Flexipass which allows many extras, discounts on cable cars ,buses etc.I would recommend doing it in 1st class on the" ICE Trains",very comfortable seats and food is served to your seat, or you can go to the dining car, and i didnt find it expensive being an Aussie.Also Wi Fi and power plug next to the seat for computers ..i phone etc.There is also plenty of room for suitcases .Looking into 2nd class seemed a bit more cramped ..not that im a snob ,but if your going for a great holiday do it in a nice way.I highly recommend going to Zermatt-Matterhorn and take the cable car ..amazing exerience. over 9 years ago
I totally agree, it's definitely the train! The Swiss love their train system and it's very comfortable und punctual. I took the train to go from Zurich airport to St.Gallen. It was more or less one hour and even with some scenic views ;-) over 9 years agoAnswered by Sabine via Travellr.com
