Is there some sort of Western Union here?

Hi!
I just started au pairing in Switzerland a couple weeks ago, and everything's been wonderful! But my employer plaid me in Swiss Francs and I really need to be able to wire some money to my brother...does anybody know of a place I can do this at? Thanks so much to any help, if anyone also knows how to get there by bus (because I don't currently have a car) that would be awesome. Thanks everyone!

Many SBB stations can do Western Union.

There are Western Union "facilities" at the train station. You can find the closest to you here: http://www.westernunion.ch/WUCOMWEB/...e=agentLocator
