It took about an hour to get to Lucerne from Zurich as well as from Basel. Either you are taking train or driving, the views on the way to Lucerne are breathtaking. I saw lush mountains, rocks, waterfalls, cottages, fields. It is like cities and villages merged into one. We drove to Lucerne from Freiburg, Germany which was about 2 hour drive.
