I'm looking to travel from Lugano, Switzerland to Menaggio, Italy in mid-October this year.
I understand the C12 bus is the most direct public transport option, after leaving central Lugano on the #2 bus. This TripAdvisor guide has fantastic detail and describes my preferred route. Also, I have found the C12 winter schedule and summer schedule in Italian at asfautolinee.it.
However, when I use the route finder at asfautolinee.it, the fastest route is ~2.5 hours using route #2 -> C16 -> C12.
I suspect the 2.5 hour result appears as the fastest C12 option because the route finder seems to simply use Google Transit (as I sometimes get the response "there are no data in Google Transit for these search criteria") - and Google Transit often doesn't have complete schedule data.
- What dates define the winter and summer periods? Which schedule will apply in October?
- Will I be able to do the trip in ~1 hour, as described in the TripAdvisor post (i.e. despite the route finder's results)?
