Train timetables changed between Geneva and France (work on lines)

Major work is being done on French-Swiss train lines in the Geneva area, in preparation for the introduction of the regional rail system, the RER, and to improve connections with France. That work will affect service between Geneva and Genève-Aéroport and between Geneva and France throughout 2014. Passengers should inquire before travelling.

The Swiss (CFF) and French (RFF) rail networks are modernizing their cross-border rail network throughout 2014. Their purpose: to lay the groundwork for the regional rail system (RER) connecting France and the Swiss cantons of Vaud and Geneva and to improve connections between Geneva and France. On both sides of the border, the work includes improving network electrification, signalling and security installations, and will make it possible to introduce new regional dual-current trains along the entire Geneva – La Plaine – Bellegarde line.

As concerns the Genève Aéroport service, the number of trains between Geneva and Genève-Aéroport will be reduced from 15 July to 13 December 2014, as a result of work on the track layout in Genève-Châtelaine. Three trains will run in either direction every hour. Please consult www.cff.ch.

The CFF and the RFF recommend that passengers inquire before setting out. Information is available at ticket counters and on www.cff.ch/geneve2014, and the CFF have set up a free dedicated hotline - 0800 22 00 11 - for the duration of the work. A flyer is also available in CFF train stations throughout the region.

In France, passengers can consult the following channels of information:
www.ter-sncf.com (Rhône-Alpes), in the "travaux" section, and www.rff.fr, in the "actualités" section.

Posters are being put up in train stations to inform passengers. Announcements will be broadcast in trains and stations. Bicycles cannot be transported on the buses and reservations are mandatory for groups.
