Take the yellow tram no. 11 from the docks ( St. Johann) directly to Bahnhof SBB (railway) in 20 minutes

The taxi isn't much faster, but will cost approx USD 25

Taking the tram will cost about 4 Swiss francs per person, that's about $3, today's exchange. It depends how much luggage you have. Also, if you buy the tram tickets, you will need lots of Swiss change to feed into the machine - usually it takes only coins of CHF 5 (maximum). So, if you take the tram, you have to schlepp all your luggage and if you take a taxi, then you pay the extra price. So, the difference is comfort and convenience vs. saving some dollars. With four people, I would take the taxi and you will need a combi (larger taxi) so it might be + $5.00

Now, may I ask you what company you are traveling by barge with?

thanks,

Dijome
