Cheapest and best is by bus - line number 5 goes every 10 minutes or so and takes about 10 minutes.

After exiting customs wak to the left and the bus stops are outside the building about 50 metres away.

If you have luggage take a taxi (if you are staying at the Intercontinental this should not be a huge problem!!) Cost is around 25frs.

Hi

I was going to ask the same question, if we catch the bus how much is it and where do you buy the tickets from.

Thanks

There are ticket machines at all the Geneva bus stops. Most do not give change so you need exact change. Check the tpg link given by Jon above for details on the current timetable (the former post goes back a year!) and costs.

I seem to remember reading in previous threads that they give you a free bus pass when you arrive at Geneva airport, valid just for that day so that tourists can get from the airport into town. Is this no longer the case?

Hi

Have read about the free ticket but it's in the arrivals area and we will be arriving on bus from Chamonix. I know we get a free bus pass when we arrive at hotel. I've done a bit more research and believe bus will cost 3 francs each, big saving in taxi fare.

I know this is tagged on an older thread but think any questions asked are useful for others doing research, for me it's a holiday booked last min, so not had time to do as much as usually would.

Thanks

Right, the free bus ticket is in the luggage hall so not reachable if you are not flying in. Bus ticket price increased though. It is now CHF 3.50 for 1 hour.
