During the winter season, there are four main local shuttle bus routes operating in Verbier. The red (L1), green (L2), yellow (L3) and blue (L 4) lines connect Verbier village with Médran, Brunet, Savoleyres, Carrefour, Le Hameau and Patier. They run daily from 08:00 to around 20:00, at intervals of 5 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 around 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, Alan and Carrefour. A pink line (L7) runs between Verbier's car parks of Périn, Catogne, Ermitage and Médran from 08:30 to 19:00 every 10 to 20 minutes.
A limited version of these routes operates in summer. From mid-May to mid-October, all of the yellow buses that operate between Le Chable and Verbier are equipped to carry up to 6 mountain bikes on specially adapted racks on the back. You have to pay a small additional fee to put your bike on the bus (approx. 2CHF). It is recommended that you book your bus in advance wherever possible to ensure that there is space.
The hamlet of Le Chable, located at the bottom of the Val de Bagnes, has direct bus services to Verbier. From Le Chable, there are regular connections to the neighbouring hamlets of Bruson, Moay, Lourtier, Sarreyer, Fionnay and Mauvoisin. Other services run from Le Chable to Martigny, the region's larger town, from where there are trains and buses to other parts of Switzerland and even into France.
Note that these timetables may vary throughout the year and during holidays so please contact the bus companies in advance to avoid disappointment.
