Rail replacement

PostBus is a strategic partner of SBB

When services in the railway network are disrupted as a result of failures or planned construction work, buses are often used to transport passengers. Since 2018, SBB has been relying on PostBus as a strategic rail replacement partner in nine regions: a major success for the bus company.

Other railway companies have also called on PostBus services during construction work in 2018. For example, the PostBus region of Northern Switzerland won a tender put out by the Aargau company BDWM Transport AG to carry passengers between Bremgarten West and Wohlen for five weeks during the summer holidays. For almost two weeks in October, the PostBus region of Valais ran replacement ser­vices for Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn (MGB) during infrastructure work. In a major operation in autumn, PostBus provided replacement services for trains on the Interlaken Ost–Brienz line, which was completely closed for eight weeks.
