On December 13th there will be changes to the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) rail timetable. Although some of the new train times will only alter some rail journeys by a few minutes on the Nyon/Geneva and Nyon/ Lausanne routings, there will be significant changes to other routes such as the Nyon/ Neuchâtel route which will involve a change of trains in Morges or Lausanne.
Under the current train Nyon/ Geneva schedule, the early morning commuting trains of 07:43, 07:53 08:13 will alter on the 13th December to 07:45, 07:55, 08:15
Don’t miss your flight!
For those taking an early morning flight out of Geneva airport, passengers need to be aware of the new train times to ensure they do not miss their flight. For example, the current early morning direct airport trains from Nyon are at 04:56, 05:23, 05:41, 06:01 and 06:30, whereas from the 13th December they will alter to 04:25, 05:25, 05:55, 06:15 and *06:25 (*for this train, change in Geneva)
There will be changes to train times across the entire country with some routes benefitting from shorter journeys and others with longer ones.
