Getting to and around CERN

Visitor access cards/registration: If you have a valid CERN access card, please remember to bring it. For those of you who do not possess one, please note that the guards at each entrance to the site will have a list of participants for the meeting and will let you in. You will then be given a badge on Thursday morning at the start of the meeting that will act as a 'visitor's access card' throughout your stay. Should you have any problems please call: +41 (0)76 487 68 73.

Between Geneva Airport and CERN: a CERN shuttle is available during certain hours between the airport and CERN.

For public transport outside these hours, and from Geneva International Airport at Cointrin:
- first take a free public transport ticket from the machine you will find at the exit to the baggage collection hall, just before customs control.
- then you can take bus Y direction "CERN" and get off at the CERN stop opposite the large Globe and the CERN site.
- or take bus 23, 28 or 57 and get off at "Blandonnet" and then catch tram 18, final stop "CERN".
