How To Find Us
The DVB Project Office is based at the headquarters of the European Broadcasting Union in Geneva’s international district. Many DVB meetings take advantage of the EBU’s excellent meeting facilities, conveniently located a short distance from Geneva airport.
From the airport
You can purchase a public transport ticket from the baggage collection area, just before customs control, at the airport.
Take the No. 5 bus (direction “Thônex, Vallard”, leaving every 10 minutes during the day) and get off at the “Le Pommier” bus stop.
The bus ride will take around 5 minutes. To reach the EBU building, walk up the road (same direction as the bus) to the junction, cross to the left and look for the two buildings with several large satellite dishes and linked by a glass walkway. The walk is less than 5 minutes.
From the city centre or elsewhere in Geneva
The No. 5 bus (direction “Aéroport”) to “Le Pommier”. When you leave the bus, walk back the direction you came from about 100m and then up the footpath to the two buildings on your left, with several large satellite dishes and linked by a glass walkway. (Bus F, direction Ferney or Gex, also serves Le Pommier, but you may need to push the button to request a stop.)
Consult the Geneva Public Transportation Network (TPG) website to determine the fastest route from any location in Geneva. Information about schedules, routes and fares are also available.
Ticket machines are available at many bus stops and on some buses, and the cost is CHF 3.-. You can also download one of the TPG smartphone apps and use it to purchase electronic tickets. To avoid a penalty, buy your ticket before boarding.
If you are staying at a hotel, you may be offered a Geneva Transport Card, giving you free access to public transport.
Taxis can be ordered online, by telephone (+41 22 320 2233) or at one of the many taxi stands around the city and at the airport.
The fare from the airport or the train station to the EBU is roughly CHF 30 depending on traffic, the time of day, how much luggage you have and the number of passengers.
Uber also operates in Geneva.
