Zurich to Innsbruck - Buses?

Exploring some travel options for a EURO game in Innsbruck (Spain vs Sweden ). I think there are international buses leaving from beside the Hauptbahnhof, but after searching I can't find any info online. Anyone know the names of bus companies, specifically going to Austria, more specifically Innsbruck?

Thanks!

It's an easy train ride from Zurich to Innsbruck via Arlberg, why bother with a bus?

I often do the trip to Innsbruck, and I would strongly suggest the train. It is direct, takes 3:40 and the scenery is stunning. For me crossing the Arlberg is always an experience (just did it yesterday in fact )

Trains are very good, but return time is not so convenient. I'm just exploring all options and this is an option I know little about. So, I'd appreciate info about buses, thanks.

No worries. Have no idea on bus timetables. But how is departure every 2 hours there abouts inconvenient?

Gap is 4hrs on Saturday night. Member of party not fond of night trains. But, really, I just want to educate myself on all options for now. Those trains are very good, I 100% agree!

I'm pretty sure EuroLines departs from the car park you're talking about, however I don't know if they go to Innsbruck.

Thanks, that was the company I couldn't think of. Looks like they serve the more eastern austrian cities only.
