Public transport

Free tickets for public transport can be printed from ticket machines located at the exits from the baggage claim area.

This ticket entitles you to a free ride on buses, trams and trains in the "Tout Genève" region for a period of 80 minutes, when produced along with your flight ticket or boarding pass (into Geneva).

Please note that once you are out of the baggage claim area, you cannot go back in to print a free ticket.

Tickets can also be bought at the automatic machines located at the bus stops or on the way to the train station located in the airport ("tout Genève" button on the ticket machine, cost 3.00CHF).

Bus stops:

Once in the arrivals meeting area, turn right and walk to the end of the terminal (signposted P51), past the post office, Montreux Jazz cafe and the car rental desks.

Exit the building and cross the coach drop-off area to find the bus stop for buses 23, 28 and 57 going downhill.
