Travelling with reduced mobility
To help you ensure that your journey with PostBus is as independent as possible, we provide you with all the information you need about travelling with reduced mobility.
Our vehicles are suitable for passengers with reduced mobility and are equipped for wheelchair transport. They are sometimes fitted with a manually operated ramp.
In small vehicles, the seats must in some cases be removed in advance to ensure access via the lift or ramp. We therefore ask you to contact us in advance. The relevant routes are listed in the official timetableTarget not accessible.
Wheelchair accessibility is indicated by the corresponding symbol on the door. On selected vehicles with ramps installed, the driving staff will operate the ramps for wheelchair users. In mountain regions, high-floor buses fitted with special wheelchair lifts are used.
For safety reasons, we kindly ask you to brace yourself with your back towards the direction of travel when you are using a wheelchair on a Postbus. In addition, wheelchairs (and buggies) have priority over bikes on Postbuses.
Passengers with reduced mobility benefit from reduced ticket fares. In order for a companion or guide dog to travel with you on a Postbus free of charge, you need a Disabled Passenger’s ID Card. You can request your ID card from the SBB.
Reservations, supplements and transportation of luggage and bicycles (as well as tandems, recumbent bikes and three-wheeled bikes) are subject to a charge for passengers with a disability and for their companions.
Stops that are not modified to provide accessibility
A replacement shuttle service is provided for stops where independent boarding or boarding with the help of driving staff are not possible. The shuttle transports passengers with reduced mobility to the next accessible stop. Please note that passengers require a valid ticket to travel on the shuttle services.
