More Questions about the Swiss Pass

Is the Swiss pass only for purchase outside of Switzerland or can I buy it from a ticket booth when I arrive in Switzerland? Second, I have viewed the map for the routes where the Swiss Pass is usable, however some details are not able too be seen. Is there a route map with zoom in and zoom out functions? Thirdly, is there a departure/arrival time tables for the boats that we can use the Swiss Pass on?

    Unlike other rail passes, the Swiss Pass is unique in that doesn't only cover the ticket costs for trains. The Swiss Pass covers boats and buses as well. I'm sorry to say, however, that we don't have access to actual schedules for boat services in Switzerland. I would recommend that you try contacting the National Tourism Board of Switzerland.
