lyon exupery airport

Post by polremy »

has anyone been there?
our train tomorrow takes us to lyon part dieu and then apparently we need to catch some sort of rail link to the airport.
just wondered how straightforward it all is.
if anyone can muck it up, it would be us.
at least we have two hours to get from one to the other.

just a bit of a last minute panic.

also a bit of procrastinating - should be packing really.

Last info - seems there will be an express tramway from the station to the airport - but only from 2009!

Polremy,
I do not know your times, but if you change at Orange you can get the train direct to the Airport.
Lyon Saint Exupéry

It saves you mucking about with buses.

have a good trip.

actually, roger, when i tried to print off your previous posts about useful places, my printer went gobbly di gook! just printed rubbish with accents of all kinds in it.
have now written down the name Hitie and Boi d'Oiseau but might have to do the rest by hnad manana.
leaving at midday!
