PUBLIC TRANSPORT SUMAS TIP – Tips and Tricks
The public transport network here is one of the best in Europe. You will find that most of the population, including the ex Swiss Président of the Confederation Didier Burkhalter, often use public transport as their first means of transport as it is reliable (Swiss timing), and offers a vast and well-developed network.
At Gland station you will find an SBB CFF counter. SBB CFF is the company that operates the Swiss railway systems. Here you can buy travel cards that facilitate your movement to and from Gland by train. Take a look at the picture below for SUMAS’ suggestion on which travel card to buy!
Gland is in the departmental canton of Vaud which extends from the towns of Nyon to Aigle. Public transport in Vaud is run byMobilis. If you are using public transport in Vaud then you will need to purchase a Mobilis ticket. Mobilis, much like SBB CFF, offers the possibility of using various means of transport in Vaud. You can buy a Mobilis travel card in combination with SBB CFF cards, just ask for the best possible option at the SBB CFF counter at Gland station.
You have the option to use PubliBike; “PubliBike is a bike sharing scheme with bicycles and e-bikes that operate via self-service stations. You can use your customer card to hire a bike from one station and return it to a different station, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.” There is a self-service station at Gland station and one right here on campus!!
