Bus Sédunois – local transportation in the city of Sion
To revitalize the city centre of Sion and enhance its commercial appeal, the city of Sion has taken concrete action. From now on, Bus Sédunois services will be free from Friday, 5 p.m. until Saturday midnight. No more excuses! Use public transport to do your shopping.
This measure will be effective during a test phase from October 2019 until June 2020.
Park&Ride, practical and fast!
Using a combination of various types of public transportation to get to work or for recreational activities is called intermodality. It is also possible to use different means of transport for the same destination.
Three means of transport for one destination!
Together PostBus, RegionAlps and Bus Sédunois offer an extended range of timetables and connections. This multi-modal availability is an ideal opportunity to experience new stress-free and sustainable means of transport. Don’t hesitate! Give your car a rest and find out how convenient public transportation is.
