New to Novartis - Parking?

Hello,

I have recently been offered a temporary contract at Novartis (St Johann campus) and was wondering where new staff can park?

Anyone know?

You've got your location as Basel - so why not use public transport?

It would take 1 hour with public transport, 20-30 minutes with car so I am wondering if is available parking.

Re: New to Novartis - Parking?

As far as I know, parking eligibility depends on distance from home. Can't remember the cut off. Also a bit on job grade (top grades have almost guarantee). On first day(s) you could get away with using visitor parking in the main gate area (first underground level) but you need to have the ticket stamped by the gate personnel before you can exit. In the meantime you need to apply for the parking permit and see if and for which parking you qualify.

Re: New to Novartis - Parking?

As far as I remember you are eligible to have a parking spot if commuting takes more than 40 minutes by public transport. I think you have to ask at HR.

Novartis employee or external contractor? They should have quite a few places become available come the new year...

30min by car which soon become 1hr in traffic

Honestly, I would use ÖV. Much more convenient.
