Very useful site. I, and three friends are travelling to Lyon for Champions Rugby Cup final in May. Is there a Satobus to Perrache (this is nearest station to our hotel). I read on some websites that the bus no longer operates or has changed due to roadworks. we could take the Rhone Express train but the stop at Lyon Part-Dieu is far from our hotel.

I am attending a Euro 2016 match (Belgium v Italy) on 13 June. I will arrive at Exupery airport at around midday. I have booked Kyriad hotel (Exupery) for over night. I want to drop my luggage at the hotel, then travel to the city centre for the afternoon, then on the the match in time for kickoff, then return to the Kyriad. Can you advise the best and most cost effective mean of public pransport for my short stay. Thanks, Roy

We are trying to find transportation from Lyon to Chamonix and return; perhaps something like a bus, but not for a group---just 2 people. Can you please tell us what might be available. We will be flying into Lyon Airport. Thank you
