Alsa+ 24 - transport pass for Alsace

I'm going on a Christmas Markets cruise and will be in Basel for 3 days 7-10 December. Our time there is very open and I was looking into going to Colmar for their markets and to see the gem of a town, since it's not on the cruise itinerary... In my online search I found the Colmar Christmas markets brochure from last year and it mentioned the Alsa+ 24 hour pass - it's such a great deal for my day trip from Basel. It's only 20 euros for Haut-Rhin, which is the only area I need, not the entire Alsace region. (33euros).

My main question is: can I easily buy the pass at the Basel Hauptbahnhof? From what I've tried to decipher, it is. Google translate only goes so far! The price of the SBB ticket to Colmar is more expensive and this includes all public transportation in the cities.

Thank you for your help!

Thank you, Peter. I will make sure to collect 2 euro coins as I work my way up the Rhine! Great tip! I like being prepared. Just a little over 3 months before I fly out... I'm now thinking I might also stop in Mulhouse for their Christmas market, as well as Colmar for the day trip.
