Geneva Transport Card for guests
Free public transport with the Geneva Transport Card!
Anyone staying in approved accommodation in Geneva is entitled to a free transport card.
When you stay in Geneva, you will receive a free digital version of the “Geneva Transport Card.” This card enables you to use public transport free of charge in Geneva for the duration of your stay.
The card is personal and non-transferable and grants you free access to Geneva’s public transport network UNIRESO: buses (TPG), trains (CFF), and boats (Mouettes genevoises). It is unlimited for the entire duration of your stay.
Three days prior to your arrival, you will receive a link by email enabling you to get your Geneva Transport Card on your smartphone. You will then be able to use it to reach your accommodation from the airport.
