Dealing with the mobility challenge in the Geneva region

11 November 2008  •  Author(s): Roland Bonzon, CEO, Geneva Public Transport (TPG)

In Switzerland, the Lake Geneva region, and more particularly the Geneva conurbation, is at the very heart of an unprecedented demographic change, where demand for public transport is very high. Geneva Public Transport (TPG) is one of the few creditable responses to the exponential growth in mobility, which makes its involvement in the cantonal transport policy absolutely essential.

Every day, more than 416,000 consumers use TPG services – equivalent to 151 million journeys per year – and this with a total population in Geneva amounting to approximately 450,000 inhabitants. These figures serve to confirm that TPG is the main operator in a region comprising, not only the conurbation of Geneva, but also the cross-border zones of nearby France and the canton of Vaud.
