With our comfortable fleet of new buses, we'll get you safely from A to Z. We operate a regular service between Amden-Arvenbüel (at 1250 metres above sea-level) and Ziegelbrücke via Weesen. For your excursions, we have a range of vehicles with between 17 and 50 seats.
Whether it's a club outing, a wedding celebration or something else: we'll pick you up near your town and bring you to the most beautiful place in Switzerland – or perhaps in Europe! Our history: in 1882 Amden was the last town in Canton St. Gallen to be connected to the roads network.
In 1892 a regular postal coach service was set up between Weesen and Amden. And in 1918 Amden applied for two trucks no longer used by the army. One of them was renovated into a 17-seat bus.
This Saurer bus made the round trip 2 or 3 times a day over the 6.6 km between Weesen railway station and Amden Vorderdorf. Goods meant for Amden – wood, straw, hay, stones and rubble were transported in the truck. In order to meet the demands of winter tourists and to plow snow from the many new streets to farms and vacation houses, Amden bought in 1961 the first self-driving snowplow.
Starting in fall 1967, the timetable featured a Sunday evening service to Ziegelbrücke, expanded in 1969 to three on Sunday and two on weekdays. This network lengthened the route to 12.9 km.
Following the lively growth of the 60s came a dip in the 70s. The avalanche danger on the Schwarzberg, directly above the only connecting road to Amden, made the town well known but kept the tourists from visiting this mountain village.
