Bus Route Map?

Hi all does any one have a map with the bus routes in Geneva... The TPG site is in french and i cant make head or tail of it.

Google maps keeps telling me to walk... I have walked quite a bit and got my ticket for a month of travelling but cant seem to figure out the routes.

Sorry to be a bother....

Re: Bus Route Map?

What exactly do you need to see in English? The only language-specific information on that plan as far as I can see is the key to the symbols, and they are all pretty self-explanatory.

What info are you looking for exactly?

I was wondering this as well.

If the OP is struggling with route planning on the TPG site then that can be done in English on the Swiss railways site.

Anyone else agree that the SBB/CFF site is one of the best in its class? Ever tried to use SNCF or TGV or the "shark pool that was once BR" sites?

Re: Bus Route Map?

The TPG offices (Cornavin railway station and Bachet-de-Pesey; Bachet closes at lunchtimes I think) should be able to give you a free map of the system. The symbols, stop names, etc. are fairly self-explanatory in french but they might do it in english? Never asked but I'd be surprised if they didn't in a tourist trap like Geneva.
