Public transport in Lyon’s urban area

A major hub for the Rhône-Alpes region, Lyon Saint Exupéry airport, located 25 km from the town centre, boasts excellent road, air and rail links, in particular with the TGV high-speed trains and Europe’s major motorways.

Operating 24 hours a day, the airport serves more than one hundred towns, half of which are abroad, and caters for an average of 6 million passengers per year.

The Satobus regular shuttle service links the airport to the town centre (a bus leaves every 20 minutes). It also runs a service, by reservation, between Lyon and Annecy, Geneva, Aix-les-Bains, Chambéry, Grenoble and other towns.

With two stations in the town center, Part-Dieu and Perrache, and a third at Lyon Saint Exupery Airport, the TGV high-speed train network puts Lyon today at the heart of Europe.

2 hours from Paris (a train every 30 minutes), 3 hours from Lille, 5 hours from London (Eurostar) - the TGV high-speed train network also serves Chambéry, Annecy and Brussels.
The Mediterranean TGV high-speed train links Lyon to Marseille in 1 hour 40 min (15 trains in each direction per day).
From La Part-Dieu, go down to the subway and take the line B towards Gerland. Switch at Saxe-Gambetta. From Perrache, take the line A towards L. Bonnevay, switch at Bellecour.
