Ticket machine not the most friendly, but got there in the end. 16 euros credit card. I stayed near perrache, and should have stuck with the tram only to get to Part Dieu, as metro was a nightmare of changes with a suitcase and escalators...More

Although Lyon airport is not the most inconveniently located airport in the world, getting out there from Lyon should be a simple and straightforward experience. It's made difficult by the simple fact that the only public transport allowed is the Rhonexpress tram. It's ludicrously expensive,...More

This train is very very expensive .. And the last stop isn’t in the City centre neither, we had to catch another train to get there. The train is new and clean, but it’s unbelievable that we have to pay this much.

Rhone Express is quick and simple. Upon leaving the airport just follow the signs for transportation. You'll pass the train station then the TGV station then immediately look for the large red Rhone Express box to purchase your ticket. After buying your ticket follow the...More

Tickets are pricey for a short trip to city centre. The plus side is it is right at the airport Exupery. Hassle free. Uber or cab would be cheaper for a group.

Arrogant and unhelpful staff. I'm disappointed, for this high price. No insurance in case of delays. Don't recommend.

This is a great fast tram service from the airport to the city center. If you plan in advance you can get a discount on the ticket (buy one month or 2 in advance)/ Plenty of space for luggage, frequent service.

Avoid this company! They really don’t care about their customers! We used this expensive tram because we didn’t have other options like bus! On the way to the airport the tram has been broken, we were locked inside. After we got out, we called the...More

This is the worst rip off ever. The price is outrageous, and the service is aweful. If you land at 11:30, you better be quick, because the last train is at midnight. Oh, you have a ID check by local police after landing, you need...More

No Rhônexpress isn't included in the TCL 72 hour card. If you are interested by visiting Lyon, the best practice is to buy a Lyon City Card. You can find her on our website. It include the return ticket Rhônexpress, TCL is... More
