Step Free

The station in Montreux is on three levels which are connected by escalators and elevators, so there is step-free access to and from the trains.
The lowest level is the entrance/exit on Avenue des Alpes, which has an escalator and elevator which link it to the station buildings.
The middle level is the location of the passage way under the railway tracks, which provides the access by escalators and elevators to the voies (tracks/platforms) which the trains arrive at and depart from - so these escalators and elevators can be used when changing trains.
At the far end of this passage is the 'Golden Pass' ticket and info desk for the MOB trains to Gstaad, Lenk and Rochers-de-Naye - and now the Golden Pass Express to Interlaken.
The voies (tracks/platforms) are on the upper level, voie 1 is used by trains towards Lausanne and Geneve - and the main station building, where the ticket office and luggage facilities are located, in on voie 1.
The trains from Geneve and Lausanne heading to Brig and St Maurice use voie 3 (there is no Voie 2) and the MOB trains to Zweisimmen and the Golden Pass Express typically depart from voie 4, which enable an easy cross platform interchange.

Onward connections

Local buses on routes / lines stop outside the exit from Montreux station on Avenue des Alpes.
