The station is also the southern terminus of the BLS car carrying shuttle train to Kandersteg station via the Lötschberg tunnel, with trains running every 30 minutes. There is no road across the Lötschen Pass, under which the tunnel runs, and the nearest alternative road crossings lie many kilometres to the east and west.
