Discover & book Verbier bus services

Updated

Verbier is perched high up on a mountainside in the canton of Valais, overlooking the Val de Bagnes. The resort comprises several small hamlets as well as the village of Le Chable at the bottom of the valley, all of which are connected with regular shuttle bus services.

Airport Bus Services to Verbier

The closest airport to Verbier is in the small Swiss town of Sion, just over 50kms away. From here, an airport transfer will take 45-60 minutes or you can also take the train to resort in around 1h30 minutes, changing in Martigny and Le Chable. 

However, Geneva International airport offers a far greater choice of flights for visitors to Verbier and there are various airport transfers services running several times a day, every day of the week in winter. It takes around 2 hours, door-to-door from Geneva to Verbier on an airport transfer.

For more information on the best transport options from the airport see our Getting Here Guide.

Verbier local buses

There are four main local shuttle bus routes operating in Verbier; red (L1), green (L2), yellow (L3) and blue (L 4). These lines connect Verbier village with Médran, Brunet, Savoleyres, Carrefour, Le Hameau and Patier. During the winter season, they run daily from 08:00 to around 20:00, at intervals of 15 to 30 minutes. All routes pass through Place Centrale and Médran, meaning there’s a bus service between these two points every 5 minutes or so.

There are a further two circular lines that service Verbier's higher villages: the orange line (L5) links Sonalon, Carrefour, Esserts and Nifortsié, while the light blue line (L6) runs between Savoleyres, Nifortsié, Planalui, Alani and Carrefour. A pink line (L7) runs between Verbier's car parks of Périn, Catogne, Ermitage and Médran from 08:25 to 17:50 every 20 minutes.

A limited version of these bus routes also operates during the summer months.

Verbier Regional Buses

The main transportation hub for Verbier is the village of Le Chable on the valley floor. Here you will find the mainline train station that connects to Martigny, the region's larger town, as well as to other parts of Switzerland and destinations across the border into France. You can travel between Le Chable and Verbier via the Le Chable gondola, which runs from 08:40 to 19:40 during the winter season (08:00 - 17:40 in summer) and takes you directly to Le Medran, in the centre of the town.

Le Chable also has direct bus services to Verbier, as well as regular connections to the neighbouring hamlets of Bruson, Moay, Lourtier, Sarreyer, Fionnay and Mauvoisin. These buses are all bright yellow and are known locally as the Post Buses. A ticket from Le Chable to Verbier costs CHF 6 and can be bought on board directly from the driver.
