Transportation (Brugg/Baden to/from PSI)

When arriving at PSI by bus, the correct stop is “PSI Ost”, not “PSI West”. For the first day of your visit, we recommend the following connections:
  • Monday & Wednesday:
    • By bus from Brugg: 08:04 and 08:05
    • By Train from Baden: 07:54
    • Then change to bus at Siggenthal Station (at 8:04)
  • Any other day:
    • By bus from Brugg: 08:23
    • By train from Baden: 08:24
    • Then change to Bus at Siggenthal Station (at 8:34)
  • When commuting from your hotel to PSI, please buy a day ticket ("Tageskarte" in German) from the vending machine. This will offer several advantages:
    • lower prices than in bus;
    • the machine accepts credit cards;
    • the ticket is valid for both bus and train;
    • this will avoid delays that could occur when buying directly from the driver (specially at rush hours and/or in case of many participants).
Note that if you are staying in Brugg and attending the social event in Baden, you should buy a day ticket with zones 550/560/565/570 (see map).

The meeting will be taking place in the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI and will be hosted by the Laboratory for Reactor Physics and Systems Behaviour LRS .
