Geneva Transport Card

Enjoy your stay in Geneva with the Geneva Transport Card All visitors staying at a hotel, youth hostel or even on a campsite in the greater Geneva area can benefit from the Geneva Transport Card, at no additional cost.

When checking in at the hotel the visitor requests the card from the hotel or other accommodation. This personal and non-transferable card is then issued, enabling its holder to the use of the entire public transportation network without restriction (bus, train and boat), and is valid for the entire duration of stay including the day of departure.

An extremely practical item for the visitor and a small gesture towards the environment in this city which prides itself on its ‘green’ heritage.

Further information on the Geneva public transport network, including routes and timetables, can be obtained from:

Direct bus link to airport

The no. 5 bus, which stops directly outside the exhibition halls at GENEVA PALEXPO, has extended its route to link the exhibition centre directly to the airport.

Every alternate bus now continues its journey right to the airport, thus bringing INDEX™17 visitors directly from the airport to the event, in a quick 3 minute journey. Equally, visitors wishing to depart directly from the exhibition have a convenient bus stop linking them directly with the airport.

Buses run every ten minutes with every other bus going to the airport. A personalised timetable can be compiled and downloaded from the TPG (Transports Publics Genevois) website:
