Hello Mario,

in principle, the best way now is the new commuter train network of Geneva, called Leman Express. On line goes from Geneva to Saint-Gervais once per daytime hour. From St Gervais, the narrow gauge train will take you to Chamonix.

In principle, I said: right now because of a strike, train service in France is highly unreliable.

Your alternative is to travel by bus. The terminal in Geneva is at Place Dorcière. Several direct busses to Chamonix every day.

Good luck!

Hello Mario anggor,

Welcome to MySwissAlps!

I will suggest that you take the bus from Geneva to Chamonix as well. You can relax and enjoy the scenery while you are on the bus. As Snowman stated......"right now because of a strike, train service in France is highly unreliable."

I have a link from our trusted partners for bus tours from Geneva to Chamonix:

Driving in Switzerland should not be underestimated. I will attach some links about driving in Switzerland, so you may make the final decision:

I hope this helps!

Best regards,
