Seeking: car share for Zurich-Geneva-Zurich trip

Hi All,

I appreciate that there's only a slender chance but here goes: does anybody on the forum travel between Zurich and Geneva on a regular basis and would be happy to take an extra passenger? Train travel is so expensive!

The passenger is my mother travelling last minute. Zurich-Geneva tomorrow, Friday 11th December. Returning Geneva-Zurich on the next available day.

Thanks in advance,
Chris

Re: Seeking: car share for Zurich-Geneva-Zurich trip

There are no "cheap buses" from Zürich to Geneve. So that link is useless.

What you can do is buy the ticket in advance, and thus obtain a supersaver ticket. That can lead to quite some savings.

Buy a Sparbillet on the SBB page. It might be too late for tomorrow but should still be possible for Saturday. Otherwise check if they have an offer for the christmas market in Zurich. With these train is cheaper

Re: Seeking: car share for Zurich-Geneva-Zurich trip

I can find the name right now, but a friend showed me an app on her phone last week of a car pooling app, she dialed up randomly a journey from zurich to bern and there were at least 5 people offering the journey through the day, might be worth some surfing to try and find a swiss car pooling app
