East, South towards Bern, Zürich, Luzern

Take S1 or S3 in the direction of Olten or Laufenburg (both'll do..) at Basel's main train station ("Basel SBB"). Get off at Pratteln and follow the Zehntenstrasse (parallel to the railway tracks) in the direction of the train you took, for quite a long time. Go left at the Obermattstrasse, go underneath the tracks, then straight. Left at the Krummeneichstrasse, that continues into the Giebenacherstrasse. Follow streets, keep right, you will go underneath the Bundesstrasse, at the other side you go left to Götzisbodenweg, through the Bahnunterführung (thing going underneath railway tracks), and the service station should be visible from there. Continue the Götzisbodenweg until there's a crossing in the garden fence and you will be at the motorway service station Pratteln-Süd.

NOTICE: It might be useful to use a sign here or to ask people where they're going.. A few kilometres down the road there's a big crossing. You can choose between the direction Zürich and St. Gallen or Bern and Luzern.

North towards Germany, Freiburg

Take S1 or S3 in the direction of Olten or Laufenburg (both'll do) at Basel's main train station ("Basel SBB"). Get off at Pratteln, and use the side exit in the direction of the industrial zone (Industriegebiet). Follow the Wasenstrasse, parallel to the tracks, in the direction of the train you took. Go left at the Gallenweg, go straight, cross the crossing, onto the Kraftwerkstrasse, follow road, crossing the bridge over the highway. Go right at the Heissgländstrasse, and follow until you find a small passing on the right, which will lead you to the motorway service station Pratteln-Nord.
