Solution

Gem'Bus is a subsidiary of RATP Dev and a partner of Geneva public transit authority. For seven years it has carried Swiss and French commuters smoothly across the border between Haute-Savoie in France and downtown Geneva.

To meet the needs of cross-border commuters even more closely, Gem'Bus amped up its service. Buses of route D now come by every 6 minutes at rush hour. Automatic ticket distributors are also provided to speed up boarding.

Gem'Bus also operates 2 regular services to connect the towns of the area, Switzerland, and the train station (every 30 minutes at rush hour and every hour at off-peak hours).  

All 22 buses are air-conditioned and wheelchair-accessible.

Another Gem'Bus brand, Proxi'GEM, provides on-demand transport and paratransit in the 17 towns within the municipality of Saint-Julien-en-Genevois.
