From LYON PART DIEU station to Aéroport Lyon-Saint Exupéry

by marshall652

Are there local evening trains from the Lyon Part Dieu train station to the Lyon-Saint Exupéry airport? RailEurope lists trains only until 5:48. If there isn't train service, what's the best way to get between the two places, including Sundays?

Look at Pedmar's page and follow his advice.

But, in general, it is best not to use Raileurope to find information about European trains. It is a ticketing agency, charges commission on fares and does not list all departures.

For times and details of almost all European trains in English look at the reliable:

or you can find info in French (easy to work out) for French services here:

There is a new express tram line connecting the airport with the Party Die station, replacing Satobus.

The website is currently only in French

Rhônexpress vous garantit depuis la gare de la Part-Dieu et depuis l'Aéroport Lyon - Saint Exupéry :

* Un départ tous les quarts d'heure de 6h à 21h (every 15 minutes 0600 - 2100)
* Un départ toutes les demi-heures de 5h à 6h et de 21h à minuit (every 30 minutes 0500 - 0600 and 2100 - midnight)
* Un fonctionnement 365 jours par an (runs every day, strikes permitting!)

* Un temps de trajet de moins de 30 minutes (30 minutes journey)

* Un retour vers Lyon au-delà de minuit en cas de retard de votre vol si celui-ci devait atterrir avant 23h30. Dans ce cas le service pourra ne pas être assuré par un Tram Express mais par un autre mode de transport (autocar, minibus, etc.). Un agent Rhônexpress sera présent en station pour vous accueillir et vous orienter. (Buses available in case your flight is delayed (so long as it lands before 23.30) and you miss the last tram)

I apologise for the awful typing error above. Party Die indeed! Prescriptive text isn't very good at times especially when you do not read what you have written before cut and pasting.

I remembered reading about this new tram line in a railway magazine I subscribe to.

Hi Marshall
sorry for late reply, I was travelling around
Pedmar info is unfortunately wrong
I updated the info on the lyon transport page (with pic of train)
the new rhonexpres is now in full opeation and therefore the bus derive "satobus" has been discontinued betwwen st exupery irport and the 2 downtown train station.
Now the only possible way is rhoneexpress or taxi
the latest departure fro mPat Dieu station to airport is at 11.30pm every night
transport time is just 30 minutes
fare is 13 euros
enjoy your stay in Lyon

Rhone Express tram began service on 9th August. My magazine states that at €13 one way it must be the most expensive tram ride in Europe! But at least it runs at up to 100km per hour.

Travel Tips for Lyon


by aliante1981

My main 'tools' of orientation (besides a map and a guidebook, that is) were the two big rivers that converge in the city of Lyon. The smaller one is called the Saone River. The bigger one is the Rohne. It was actually the course of the Rohne that I followed taking the train from Geneva to Lyon.

To the west of the Saone river -- on the left -- sits 'Vieux Lyon', or the Old Town, and the Fourviere Hill with the famous basilica and several Roman sights worthy of attention.

Between the two rivers -- on the right -- is the 'centre ville', with the old Terraux neighborhood, Place Bellecour and the Perrache train station. To the east of the Rohne sits Part Dieu District and most of the city's neighborhoods. This is where you're likely to arrive by train, as most trains, including several TGV ones, arrive at the Lyon Part Dieu -- the more modern one -- train station. In this disctict you can also find a huge shopping centre and some delicious brownies (that's on the topic of food).

Murals and trompe l'oeil

by Yso

Lyon is full of Trompe l'oeil paintings - there are several in the old town, a very well known one showing all the famous people from Lyon's past just upriver on the Saone from the place des terraux - these are all marled in teh tourist maps available from the tourist office.

There are others which are less well known and advertised - the Etats Unis area (you'll have totake a bus) which is a more recent area of the city has murals on mist of the buildings. Walkign tour guides of this area should be avaiable from teh tourist office

You'll notice that the guide will tell you to go to Rue Mercière for fine dining, which is true. However, there are many other good ones around town. Another one I really enjoyed is LES ADRETS.
The service was great, the food superb, the ambiance cozy. Everything I tried was wonderful to the palate. They have three fixed menus. I chose the middle price range (appr. US$40) but all dishes are creatively prepared. The magnificent 4 course meal include entrée, aperitif, main course, cheese & bread and dessert . (Drinks not included) The additional bargain is you don't have to tip but you are certainly welcome to do so.

Vieux Lyon

by OrlandoBR

Vieux-Lyon, covering the districts of Saint-Georges, Saint-Jean and Saint-Paul, is a protected area in Lyon, as it gathers a fine ensemble of Renaissance buildings (XV and XVI Centuries), and there you'll find some traboules , the covered passageways of Lyon.

Visit the Musée de Beaux Arts
The Musuem of Fine arts in Lyon is no doubt, one of the best musuems in
France. Great for those who enjoy European arts.
