Hi Maureen and Welcome to MySwissAlps
You can reach the top of Mt Pilatus in 2h 15 minutes from Basel (that's with the fastest connections). A round trip will cost you just under CHF150 full fare. The trip involves train, bus, gondola and cable car. Make sure it is a sunny or at least a not too cloudy/rainy/snowing day. I assume you are travelling soon?
If later in the year (towards summer) you can do a very nice round trip including a boat ride and cog-wheel railway. It's know as the Golden Round Trip. You can read about it here www.myswissalps.com/pi latus/gettingthere
You can uses the Swiss Railway Timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable) to check for yourself to pick the best departure times. The top of Pilatus is Pilatus Kulm.
