Re: Basel trasfers by bus

The simplest public transport way (with the least changes and easy to find transfer) would be to catch the airport bus (number 50) from outside the airport (make sure you leave from the Swiss side, not the French) to the main railway station (the last of its stops). Then transfer to the number 8 tram towards "Kleinhunigen" - when you get off the bus, you will see all the tram stops. The tram you want leaves from the 3rd line from the right, so as you look at it, it's the left hand track of the furthest covered stop to the right (they're all labelled).

Stay on the tram all the way to the end (Kleinhunigen). As you get off, look to the right and you will see Stücki center about 200 metres to the right and just across the little river. Follow the road back (along the river) and cross the footbridge when you get to it.

This will take the best part of an hour, and cost 4.20 CHF for a two zone ticket.


A shorter way on bus tram (about 30 minutes), but more complex, would be;

Catch the 50 bus to Kannenfeldplatz (the 4th stop, I think). Cross the road next to the bus stop toward tramstops and catch the number 1 tram towards Dreirosenbrucke. Get off at Dreirosenbrucke (4th stop, just after you cross the big river). As you get off the tram at Dreirosenbrucke, you will see another tramstop in front and to the right of the tram (as if turning right for a few metres at the crossroads). Take the number 8 from this stop, towards Kleinhunigen all the way to the end (about 3-4 stops) and follow instructions above. Again, you'll need a two zone ticket for 4.20 CHF.

A taxi will take 10-15 minutes and should cost about 40-45 CHF.

Re: Basel trasfers by bus

Does the tram offer a choice of tea or coffee for the journey?

Re: Basel trasfers by bus

If you have a hotel reservation you can print off it won't cost you anything. Basel hotels provide their guests with a local public transport pass and if you have a reservation and are travelling to the hotel that already counts.

Re: Basel trasfers by bus

Best way is probably to get the #8 tram from Kleinhuningen to Schifflaende (9 stops) then the #11 tram (direction St Louis Grenze) 2 stops to Johanniterbrucke then it's just a short walk up from there:

Good job you are arriving next week and not the week after during Fasnacht as lots of public transport won't be running or will be diverted that week!
