Lötschberg Base Tunnel

does Lötschberg Base Tunnel is also used for motorail ? i mean this thing that works like a ferry.

if not, what is the best (fastest) way to go on the other side of the alps from bern by car? use the old Lötschberg Tunnel ? or just simple drive through the pass? (is it Simpleon Pass ? )

As far as I know the Base Tunnel is only for passanger and freight trains. You still have to use the old Lötschberg tunnel for transporting cars.

Yup, Credde is correct. You have to go all the way to Kandersteg to get on the train with your car. You get off the other side at Goppenstein. Still a very quick way to get to Valais from the north.
