In London threre is a very usefull website TFL (transport for London). Its great that one can find the best way to get from initial to final destinations.

Re: Equivalent to TFL?!

The equivalent (for all of Switzerland) is www.sbb.ch - you can enter street addresses as well as bus/tram/train/boat stations.

(Their walking times are typically generous; if you're not in a zimmer frame you may well shave a minute or two off the walk at each end, or even make a tighter intermediate connection. If this is your daily commute, try variations and see.)

Re: Equivalent to TFL?!

The best place to ask for info would be the TPG office at Cornavin (also online). You can get maps there, prepaid cards (I find those really handy when I am not in the city so much, etc.) and all other info. I second sbb.ch, too. That little tpg office will fill you in on all other little bits of info that make running around Geneva painless, people there are helpful and speak English....And then, like all my GE friends, you get your bike ...

I tried websites that you recommended because I needed to know my trip details in advance. Great advise-thank you. Got from one place to another easily!
