Gare des Eaux-Vives

Léman Express, Gare des Eaux-vives to greatly change area transportation

November 1, 2019

Beginning next month, transportation in the Geneva area will be drastically different with the reopening of Gare des Eaux-Vives and the start of the Léman Express train network.

The new train line will enable direct trips from Geneva to Annecy and Evian-les-Bains as well as local stops to Lancy-Pont-Rouge, Cornavin, Champel, Annemasse, and more.

A quick ticket search revealed a nice savings for Geneva to Annecy trips, in addition to a quicker ride. The trip is 14,90 € via the Léman Express one-way, versus at least 20 € currently.

The new Gare des Eaux-Vives, set to open December 15, is located underground and accompanied by the O’Vives project containing 400-meters of underground shopping including a Migros. Cafés and restaurants will be above ground as well as new apartment buildings.

The station can be accessed by the 12 tram as well as the 21 bus. TPG pass holders will be able to use trains servicing Geneva Zone 10 stops without an additional cost.
