Since the beginning of this week, a new cross-border bus line has been operating between the towns of Triesen, Vaduz, Schaan and Buchs in Liechtenstein and Grabs in Switzerland. This is the first line to be jointly operated by the transport companies LIECHTENSTEINmobil and Rheintal Bus (RTB).
According to the Liechtenstein Volksblatt, the bus line will offer 27 trips per day between Grabs in the canton of St. Gallen and Triesen. The Buchs train station will be served by the new bus line Monday to Friday during peak traffic times in the morning, afternoon and early evening every 15 minutes. The cross-border, direct service connection between Triesen and Grabs will operate using buses from both LIEmobil and RTB.
CEO of BUS Ostchweiz AG, Walter Dierauer, told Radio Liechtenstein: It makes us proud and pleased that we and our colours are now also represented in Liechtenstein. Around 3,000 people from the Werdenberg region commute daily to work in Schaan, Vaduz or Triesen; around 300 people commute in the opposite direction. Ulrich Feisst, LIEmobil CEO, told Radio Liechtenstein: Among other things, the hospital in Grabs is an important destination for our passengers. The new bus line took only half a year from concept to implementation.
