We unexpectedly had to use this service on our return to Lyon airport and were a little concerned about some of the reviews. Agree the signage across the Part Dieu concourse is appalling but, because we were aware of this, we were able to keep...More

This is the worst experience of getting to the worst airport. Nobody tells you that the Rhone Express only goes to the TGV station, which is 20 minutes walk from a poorly signposted airport terminal. If you absolutely know where you are going and how...More

This is a useful and quick service between Lyon and the airport. It is somewhat pricey, but convenient to get to the centre of town. It's like a tram and ends at a tram stop behind Lyon Part Dieu station, look for the red RhoneExpress...More

Very easy way from Lyon Airport to Lyon Railway Station. 26 Euro return ticket. Only two stops between airport and station.

Lyon airport is about 14 miles from the city centre, and although there is a train station some 5 minutes walk from the terminal, there is currently no service that takes you to the city. The main alternative was the Rhone Express, with 2 or...More

The tram and its service is excellent. The price is extortionate. Two or more will travel more cheaply in a taxi. I bought a ticket online before I flew in, and showed the QR thingy to the ticket collector on my phone without having to...More
