Jungfrau Railways increases service frequency in 2022 timetable
The 2022 timetable will again offer locals and visitors using the Jungfrau Railways a more frequent offering of services. Against the backdrop of Covid-19, the situation will no doubt again remain challenging during 2022. All regional passenger services between Interlaken Ost, Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen/Wengen will run at regular half-hourly intervals. What's more, on weekends the Lütschinen valleys will remain accessible from Bern for an extra half an hour than had previously been possible. The services on tourist routes will also become more frequent next year.
During the winter and summer seasons, services on the Wengernalp Railway and the Jungfrau Railway in 2022 will again operate every half hour. Hourly services will however operate during low-demand periods in the spring and autumn. Next year, the Jungfrau Railways will remain flexible to enable it to increase its timetabled service frequency at short notice during holiday weeks and when the weather is fine. This may also take place if demand and international tourism pick up even more next year.
Night supplemental bus services now via Matten
In regional passenger transport, the services on rail & cableway routes entitled to receive public sector funding will operate at half-hourly intervals throughout 2022. This applies to the routes operated by the Bernese Oberland Railways (BOB) from Interlaken Ost to Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen, the Wengernalp Railway (WAB) between Lauterbrunnen and Wengen, and to the Lauterbrunnen-Mürren Rail- & Cableway (BLM). The Lauterbrunnen-Mürren Rail- & Cableway will increase its service frequency to quarter-hourly during the peak winter and summer seasons.
Night supplemental bus services between Lauterbrunnen, Grindelwald and Interlaken will now run via Matten. Buses will also stop at bus stops in Wilderswil, Oberland Shopping; Matten b. I., Gsteigstrasse; Matten b. I., Hotel Sonne; Interlaken, Sonnenhof (only stopping for passengers to alight). On Friday and Saturday nights, the last bus will now depart Interlaken Ost at 0:35 and travel to Lauterbrunnen and Stechelberg, with connections to Wengen and Mürren. The buses services will guarantee the InterCity connection from Bern (23:39 hrs) to Interlaken Ost (00:30 hrs). Consequently, on weekends the Lütschinen valleys will remain accessible from Bern for an extra half an hour than had previously been possible.
