Every couple of hours a French Train Exprès Regional (TER) links Lyon Part Dieu with Geneva.  Change at Geneva for destinations all over Switzerland.

A TER to Lyon about to leave Geneva.  It's a push-pull train:  There's an electric locomotive at one end, and a driving cab built into the coach at the other end.
