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

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.
