Hello to everyone! (this is my first post here! )

Currently me and my wife are living in Cottens, a small village outside the city of Fribourg. My wife works downtown Fribourg.

I have a chance of getting a job (IT related) in Geneva.

Do you have any ideas of where to move so that we can split the distance? Me travelling from Cottens to Geneva by train will be like 1h45min and that is long!
It takes only 20 minutes my wife to get to her job.

Any suggestions, ideas would be more than welcomed!

Thanks

Re: New Location

Lausanne or thereabouts is pretty much halfway between the two. Would give you both a journey time of around 45 minutes to an hour if you're near a main line train station. The problem is the express trains only stop occasionally at other stations besides Lausanne and Fribourg from the Geneva end. You'd need to check connection times to find the best fit. Go to the SBB website which can give you detailed travel times for various journeys.

Any chance of the wife also getting a job in Geneva area? Might make easier for both of you.

Thanks for the info!
You are correct, maybe my wife should try and find something in Geneva area but her domain is very narrow!!!
