Higher-priced tickets for Léman Express travelling through France
The new Léman Express rail network starts in December.
The service will provide regular trains running through Geneva from the outer regions.
But for some, although the train maybe quicker, it will mean travelling through France – even for only a few hundred meters, despite the journey starting and ending in Geneva. That normally means a higher-priced ticket.
But canton Geneva says it will refund the difference for pass holders so they will not be disadvantaged.
The same offer will be made to those living in the Geneva enclave of Céligny as they will have to travel through Vaud.
The refund is likely to cost the canton tens of thousands of francs.
