Access to the ILO

From Geneva Airport

The No. 28 bus runs from Geneva Airport (Cointrin) to the ILO. The ride takes about 15 minutes and buses leave roughly every 20 minutes. Take the bus marked Jardin Botanique, and alight at the BIT stop. The price of the ticket is currently 3 CHF. Taxis charge in the region of 30 CHF for the trip.

From Geneva city centre

The F and 8 buses link Geneva train station, Cornavin, directly to the ILO (BIT stop), though the No. 8 bus terminates one stop earlier on Saturdays and Sundays, leaving a five-minute walk to reach the Organization.

Bus passes

All participants staying at hotels, youth hostels or campsites in Geneva can benefit from a free Geneva transport card. The personal, non-transferable card is issued on registration at the place of residence, and entitles its holder to the use of the entire public transport network without restriction (bus, train and boat). It is valid for the duration of the stay in Geneva, including the day of departure. The aim of this initiative on the part of the Geneva authorities is to promote sustainable development by encouraging the use of collective transport.

For those participants not staying at hotels, youth hostels or campsites in Geneva, bus cards may be purchased from newsagents, tobacconists and TPG kiosks in Geneva.
