Rhônexpress: the best way to reach the center of Lyon from Lyon-Saint-Exupéry airport

During a seminar, an incentive, a congress or any other event, many companies arrive at Lyon airport. But you are probably wondering how to get to the center of Lyon from the airport or the Lyon-Saint-Exupéry train station? The Rhônexpress should be just what you are looking for. Fast and easy to access, it allows you to arrive at your business event on time. In this article, we present you this means of transportation.

The Rhônexpress: the ideal and responsible transportation for your business trips

Reach the center of the City of Lights from Lyon-Saint-Exupéry airport with ease with this express streetcar line. The Rhônexpress is the fastest rail link in France between an airport and a city center. Located within walking distance of terminals 1 and 2, the Rhônexpress provides a link between Lyon airport and the Part-Dieu train station 7 days a week, from 4:25 am to midnight. The journey time is 30 minutes.

Operated by the Transdev group on behalf of Sytral (Syndicat Mixte des Transports pour le Rhône et l’agglomération lyonnaise), this company offers shuttles every 20 minutes. Thanks to this means of transport, you are guaranteed to arrive on time for your meetings, seminars or any other event. The Rhônexpress offers many services: free wifi, electrical outlets, air-conditioned space and free access to magazines/tourist guides. In addition, screens are installed inside and inform you on the real time schedules of trains and planes. Are you planning to take public transport (bus, streetcar, metro) at the exit of this shuttle? You can save time by buying your TCL tickets on board. Travel green!

Indeed, a trip on this streetcar emits 29x less CO2 than a car. In addition to avoiding traffic jams by bus or cab, you are helping to preserve the environment.



Creating a Rhônexpress business account: a simple process with many advantages

Why and how to create a Rhônexpress professional account?



You are a company, an administration, an association or a tourism professional? The professional account will simplify your life and that of your employees. From now on, you will be able to buy tickets, send them by email to the people concerned and create “secondary accounts” if needed. If you have to deal with an unforeseen event, you can also cancel these tickets online.


There are three main reasons to take the Rhônexpress:


  • Savings: you get a 10% discount on your bills. You can pay your bills at the end of the month. If you are a tourism professional, you will benefit from a 10% commission on all tickets sold.
  • Simplicity: Facilitate the management of your employees’ expense reports and tickets. Everything is centralized in your Rhônexpress account.
  • Eco-responsible: you participate in the respect of the environment by choosing this responsible means of transportation. This is a nice little gesture for our planet.

To create this account, nothing could be simpler: Just go to the professional “company” area of the Rhônexpress website.

Fill in a request form to open an account and within 48 hours you will receive the link to access your account. Tested and validated by the Séminaires Business Events team!
