Re: Basel SBB- French Ticket Counter?

You can buy tickets at the SBB kiosks, but it looks like if you need a proper SNCF office, St. Louis is your best bet.

Re: Basel SBB- French Ticket Counter?

I think Mirfield's right - you're better off going to Saint-Louis and doing it there.

I seem to remember reading somewhere that the SNCF didn't really want to run that part of the station any more and were hoping to give it over to the SBB - which is why the only thing left is the one solitary ticket machine.

The last three times I've been there I've seen people miss their trains because of massive queues behind that stupid machine. I even ended up buying tickets for half the queue once because I was the only one there who could work it

Does anyone know if the train to Colmar stops in San louis? That way i could buy a full price to san loius, get the card there and then the discount to Colmar and back. Thanks and Happy Friday!
