Where to obtain Postbus route plans in Switzerland?

I want to do some bus trips in Switzerland. Hoping someone can help with the planning please.
Last year someone (possibly Palenq) posted information on a couple of bus trips which I'm interested in.
For example:
Route: Meiringen > Grimsel > Oberwald > Nufenen > Airolo > Gotthard > Andermatt > Susten > Meiringen - sounds like a great trip.

And also (I think) one between Meringen and Interlaken - sounded good too.

When I get to Switzerland where can I find bus route plans and timetables so that I can plan and do these trips?

I enquired at a tourist desk in Switzerland last year - I received a blank look.
Thanks

Thanks to Grrr and Neckervd. I agree with Mimar, very comprehensive helpful answers. I had actually found the postauto site just ahead of your post, Mimar.

I had tried to do this research through their internet site last year with little legible printed out success. Maybe it was the combination of stress with an ill mother and maybe their site has improved as well because the site looks different to last year - maybe it's me that has improved!
Anyway I have the answers I needed.

Thanks

I believe you can use the sbb site and, under "advanced search" select bus.

Kja: yes you can, but it's rather difficult for long journeys as you often have to enter tons of via's.
Try Bellinzona - Malles (5 different bus lines) and you will get no result.
http://www.fahrplanfelder.ch/ is often more helpful, but only if you have a good knowldege of Swiss geography

Just tried - it works just fine, at least with the German name of the destination (Mals).
