Le Fayet multimodal transport hub

Transport and mobility in Saint-Gervais Getting around the region made easy

At the foot of Mont Blanc,the commune of Saint-Gervais-les-Bains, with its multiple market towns staggered between 590 and 1500 meters above sea level, is faced with complex mobility issues. With its many villages scattered at different altitudes, getting around Saint-Gervais is largely dependent on efficient means of transport.

The challenge of soft mobility in Saint-Gervais

With its towns scattered at different altitudes, the movement of inhabitants and visitors in Saint-Gervais is largely dependent on carbon-based means of transport. This reality can no longer continue on the sidelines of the Plan de protection de l’atmosphère (PPA) in place in the Arve Valley, aimed at reducing pollutant emissions, of which transport is a major contributor. Faced with this challenge, thea municipality is committed to completely rethinking daily mobility with a program to change travel habits.

A global mobility scheme

This strategic initiative is part of a global mobility scheme, on a communal and even supra-communal scale, strengthening connections between the various market towns, the rail network and its multimodal exchange hub, and leisure and spa activities. The integration of elevators (valley + inclined) into this network, in addition to electric shuttles to the station and cycling infrastructure, will ensure smooth travel while minimizing environmental impact.


Jean-Marc Peillex
Towards reinvented mobility

We’re completely rethinking Saint-Gervais’ public transport network to meet the needs of all residents, offering a variety of options for commuting, work and leisure, in all seasons.

By bringing towns closer together, reducing car dependency, we’ll promote sustainable mobility so that Saint-Gervais is at the forefront of modernizing mobility while preserving our heritage. Together, we’re building a more connected and accessible future for Saint-Gervais.
