We would love to hear more about this bus ride, once you complete it you can post about your experience on our forum: www.myswissalps.com/fo rum/tripreports
Tipping is not common in Switzerland at all, anywhere www.myswissalps.com/fo rum/topic/tipping-amounts-in-switzerland
Having said that, sometimes (not very often) in restaurants and bars, you may find tipping is appreciated, if so they will have a box or a jar next to the pay point with the label "Trinkgeld" in the Swiss German part or "Pourboire" for the French speaking part. Both are literally translated into "drink money", so the idea is the bar or restaurant staff could buy themselves a drink. Even then most people don't tip but rather deposit the lose change there from a transaction.
What is more common is to round up the bill, but there is no rule as in the US. Specially if it is a bus ride, there is no need to tip the driver, unless it was a private tour company or something and they explicitly told you the staff expect a tip.
Of course if you're really satisfied with the trip or service, no one is preventing you from doing it!
Hope this helps and look forward to reading about your adventure!
