  • Bus

    Zermatt has a small fleet of electric and solar powered buses as the main mode of public transport here. You can travel for free on the Bergbahnen line during winters (from November to May) with any ticket for the Zermatt Bergbahnen (in the southern area) to MGP. There are two kinds of buses in Zermatt - the Green and the Red lines. The Green line links the lift stations of Klein, Matterhorn and Sunnegga as well as down to the train station. The Red line runs from Winkelmatten into the resort and to the Sunnegga lifts. You can differentiate the two buses by looking at their bumpers.
