Hello again Thanks for the answer before. It helped me a lot. I’m really fascinated by the 4-day ticket you showed me. It’s such a great deal! But what happens when the weather is bad? If the ropeway closes because it’s too windy or it’s being repaired, can I ask for refunds?? I’m visiting in August. The weather is usually nice and cool in the mountains during August, right? I heard that sometimes I need to draw a boarding-order ticket before getting on the bus, and sometimes I don’t.@@ When do I need to do that, and where can I get the so called “乘車整理券”? Thanks 😀 ~Maggie
The weather in August is generally stable and you shouldn’t have to worry too much about strong winds. If it does stop and you’re unable to use it, I don’t know if you could get a refund for that portion of your ticket (about 1800 yen).
The boarding-order ticket (or 乗車整理券) shows what stop you boarded on. 0 would be the first stop, 1 the next and so on. There’s a machine that dispenses them inside the bus as you board. They’re used to determine your bus fare as you get off the bus, but if you’re using the Alps Wide Free Passport it shouldn’t matter.
I hope that answers your question!
