The Swiss Alpine Club (SAC) has posted a new German and French internet page at www.alpenonline.ch , to help mountaineers plan their tours.
Now information on Alpine Club huts and public transport routes to the mountain regions can be downloaded quickly and easily. Besides railway and postal bus services the site also includes alpine taxis, car-sharing options and even mountain bikes as different means of reaching the starting point.
The online alpine timetable is the result of the three-year SAC mobility campaign entitled Alpen retour, aimed at encouraging mountain enthusiasts to make greater use of public transport facilities when travelling to the mountains. And although the campaign officially ended in June of this year, "alpine-friendly" mobility is to remain an important issue for the SAC. Source and information: www.sac-cas.ch (de/fr)
