Rental car from MLH

We intend to travel by train from CH to MLH to pick up a rental car on the French side of the airport. Because this airport has a Swiss and a French side with different pricing for car rental, we don't know if there is access to the rental car counter from the train station. Any help is appreciated.

Mulhouse is quite some distance from the airport. Why don't you just rent your car in Mulhouse directly rather than going back to the airport? There's no train station at the airport on either the French or Swiss side.

no train from CH to MLH airport, only bus. However, no problem to cross from the Swiss to the French side or vice-versa inside the terminal.

Thank you. There is a bus from the main train station in ZRH going directly to MLH. Good to know that there is no issue going to the French side.

This bus (Flixbus) actually arrives at the French side as it is illegal to sell domestic bus tickets in Switzerland.

Would it not be simpler to just get the regular local bus to BSL and walk across the landside border in the airport? (It takes seconds...)


Or better still, get the train direct from Basel to Mulhouse-Ville and get a car from the city, rather than messing about at the airport?
