Mid Morning Mix// The Breakfast Show // Communications// Art & Culture // By Mark // Sept. 26, 2019

Starting on December 15th the new rail network, the Léman Express, starts. It's being described as the new public transport backbone for the Geneva region. 

230km of lines, 45 stations in Geneva and France. Services will run from Coppet to Annecy, Cornavin to Evian and Annemasse to Bellegarde. All for the standard TPG or Unireso price.

The Director General of the Geneva Cantonal Transport Office, David Favre, explains what it means for the region and how it will change how we all get around.

The new service will mean major changes for commuters. Here David Favre explains how the new service is a boon for cyclists.

Even if you have to use a car for part of your daily commute, David Favre says there are new park and ride facilities available. The train can still make sense for drivers. 

The new train network, the Léman Express, will make travelling around the greater Geneva easier – but it will also be good news for those who need to travel further afield. David Favre, says the new service will mean better connections to national and international services – and the airport.
