Tirano to Locarno in May - too early for Palm Express

We need to get from Tirano to Locarno on May 17 [too early for the Palm Express which starts in June]. We are actually coming from St. Moritz but do not want to take the Glacier Express, preferring to use the Bernina routes. Local/regional suggestions are fine. What are the best and fastest options? Any help is appreciated!
[I will soon send several questions about broader itinerary].

See my post on your other thread. Oops, didn't know you'll be travelling in May - that's not exactly a very good time for the high Alps.

Is the Bernina Express bus running then? It connects in Tirano with the Bernina Express train and takes you to Lugano, a short enough train ride from Locarno.

the Palm Express bus, which I took and rave about, links St Moritz with Lugano but not via Tirano I believe but via the Majola Pass - and there may be other buses St Moritz to Lugano via the Majola Pass other than the Palm Express?

www.swisstravelsystem.com may have details.
