Geneva transport decision will mean cuts
In Geneva, the cantonal President Francois Longchamp couldn’t hide his frustration as voters rejected a rise in public transport tickets – which will lead to a cut in services starting next month.
Longchamp says Geneva will be the only city in the developed world cutting public transport.
The first move will be cutting the number of trams serving Carouge by half.
53.5% of voters rejected the fare rise – almost exactly the same number who approved a similar measure three years ago.
