    Interchange nodes are points where several bus lines converge or where there is also a railway stop, offering the possibility of changing means of transport. For those arriving from Losone/Ascona with Line 1, it is no longer possible to reach Solduno, S. Antonio and Cinque Vie directly, so it is advisable to get off at Ponte Maggia and continue the journey with Line 7. For those arriving from Gordola/Tenero it is also possible to change at the Piazza Stazione, Debarcadero or Piazza Castello stops.
