There are many transportation alternatives to get to the city center after your arrival at the Basel Airport with Pegasus. However, transportation is very expensive in Basel, especially if you choose a taxi. Moreover, you need to pay an extra fee on Sundays and holidays. That's why we recommend you to use the bus numbered "50", which takes off in every 15-20 minutes. Since the airport is close to the city center, you'll be there in 20 minutes.
