Postbus in Swiss Parks colours goes on tour
PostBus is the public transport partner of Swiss Parks, which has been operating as a network since 2007. PostBus Switzerland Ltd and Swiss Parks Network highlighted this partnership today, Monday, 19 May 2014, at a public event held at the Bundesplatz, Berne. The Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN), as owner of the Swiss Parks brand, supports this partnership. The Swiss Parks Postbus is a roving ambassador: the outside is covered with photos of Swiss parks, while inside, passengers can smell the forest air, walk on a meadow-patterned floor, and can explore the info wall showing a map of all 20 Swiss parks.
The special vehicle will be used as a route bus in the different regions until 31 October and will serve as a shuttle at events encouraging people to take a trip to the natural parks. The special bus will be at the centenary celebrations of Swiss National Parks in the Zernez region (Graubünden) on 1 August and at the Locarno Film Festival (Ticino). Head of PostBus Daniel Landolf, Swiss Parks President Stefan Müller-Altermatt, and FOEN Deputy Director Franziska Schwarz unveiled the Swiss Parks Postbus together at the Bundesplatz in Berne.
