New from 2025 | Support for Young people (-100%) and OASI/DI (-50%) travel passes 

The Canton of Geneva offers young students up to the age of 24 an annual or monthly Unireso pass, subject to certain conditions regarding education and income. It has also decided to cover 50% of the cost of annual or monthly passes for OASI/DI pensioners living in the canton of Geneva.

Implementation on January 1, 2025


This changeover will be implemented on January 1, 2025. In the meantime, people who need to renew their unireso travel pass can purchase their annual travel pass with complete peace of mind. The amount corresponding to the period between the State of Geneva's decision to cover the cost and the end of validity of your subscription will be reimbursed on a pro rata temporis basis.

The fares covered by the measure concern the unireso zone 10 part of the following travel passes:


  • annual and monthly unireso travel pass;
  • annual and monthly multi-zone Léman Pass travel pass;
  • annual and monthly Léman Pass route + zone 10 travel pass;
  • modular Swiss travel pass course + zone 10; 
  • TER route + zone 10 travel pass.


From January 1, 2025, young people and people receiving OASI/DI benefits who meet the following conditions will be reimbursed 100% or 50% of their annual or monthly unireso zone 10 travel pass for public transport (bus, trolleybus, train, tramway and mouettes genevoises)


For children under 6 years old, transport remains free (no travel pass required)

The procedures and documents required to prove entitlement to full or partial reimbursement of the public transport travel pass will be specified during the autumn.

Subscription and refund procedure

For any purchase of an annual or monthly unireso pass before January 1, 2025, holders who so request will be reimbursed the amount of their pass prorata temporis, i.e. the amount corresponding to the period between the date of implementation of the assumption of responsibility by the State of Geneva on January 1, 2025 and the expiry date of their pass.

For all purchases of annual or monthly unireso passes from January 1, 2025, the reimbursement will be effective from the day of purchase.

Reimbursement details will be announced in autumn 2024.

Practical information on the roll-out of this measure will be regularly updated on the unireso website.

Obligation to travel with a valid transport ticket

It's important to remember that anyone travelling by public transport must have a valid ticket, even if they benefit from a total or partial reimbursement of the cost of their season ticket. Travelling without a valid ticket is liable to a fine in the event of a check by transport company officials, even if the person checked is eligible for the State of Geneva's reimbursement program.

Since August 1, 2015, travel passes for public transport are activated on a SwissPass card, regardless of the operator. We now invite all those who do not yet have a public transport travel pass to open a SwissPass account on the tpg  webshop or in one of our 3 agencies: Cornavin, Rive and Lancy Pont Rouge.
