Annemasse-Geneve new tram line

Hello,

I currently live in France, but I'm planning to get a job in Geneve. I've asked several people about the possibility to live in France and work in Geneve, but they all said it's not the best idea because of the daily commute.

However, I've been reading online about a direct Annemasse-Geneve tram line which is currently under construction, and will be functional in 2019 (http://www.tram-annemasse-geneve.fr/). With a direct tram line, I guess living in Annemasse would be like living in a neighborhood of Geneve.

I wonder if thinking long term, getting a rent or even buying an appartment in Annemasse is a worthy investment.

I wonder what people living in the area think about this.

Thanks,
Mihai

Re: Annemasse-Geneve new tram line

Didn't know about the tramline- that is interesting and could have been so useful for an old friend of mine (sadly no longer with us).

These big projects have a habit of running over- so it could be 2, 3 years till then. But do consider other factors too. 1 is healthcare provision, and the other is unemployment payments. If you live in France, unemployement benefits, should you be unlucky to lose your job, as really not comparable.

There is also the CEVA under construction https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CEVA_rail

It's not too far for a bicycle, or a scooter, or a Ducati Monster.

I believe there is a park & ride scheme too.

Re: Annemasse-Geneve new tram line

It's been 2 years since I opened this thread, and I finally got a job offer in Geneva. The company I'll be working for is actually located very close to the French border, so it makes total sense for me to be living in Annemasse.


Also, the works for the new tram line are on track, to be finished end of this year.

It is a long border, all the way from Hermance to Ferny Voltaire. If you are going to working at the airport, for example, Annemasse would not be the best place.

The number 12 line is already in place as far as the frontier at Mouillesulaz It is being extended into France.

The offices are actually close to Mouillesulaz.


I need to do some documentation on the tax system and health care benefits of a "transfrontalier". I've been living in France since 2015 so I'm familiar with the French system.
