Latest from TPG - annual tickets for sale at CERN

Starting in early 2013, TPG’s annual tickets will be for sale at CERN for 650 CHF, instead of the typical 700 CHF. Further details on their sale will be communicated as soon as possible.


With effect from 9 December, the TPG (Transports publics genevois) network will be introducing several improvements to its services:

 - The existing 14 tram service (CERN - Bel-Air) will become the 18 (CERN - Stand), and its frequency will be increased to a tram every 10 minutes;

- The Y bus service (Ferney-Voltaire-Mairie - Val-Thoiry via CERN and Geneva airport) will also be improved:

• from Monday to Friday, there will be a bus every 15 minutes at rush hours (between 6.30 a.m. and 9.30 a.m. and between 4.30 p.m. and 7 p.m.), i.e. an increase of 50%,
• on Saturdays, the frequency of this service will be increased to a bus every 45 minutes,
• on Sundays, there will be one bus per hour throughout the day between 6 a.m. and midnight.

You can consult the details of these new services on the TPG web site, where you can download all information on the new services together with updated network maps from the Les + du réseau page.


In addition, on 15 January 2013, between 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., TPG officials will be on hand at a special stand near Restaurant 1 in CERN's Main Building:

• to provide you with further information on the public transport system (network maps, practical guides, information on prices, etc.)
• to answer any questions you may have and help you identify the best route to meet your needs.

Please note that it will not be possible to purchase tickets, season tickets or other material at the stand.
