Local Transport

Buses, trams, a four-line metro and two funiculars linking Vieux Lyon to Fourvière and St-Just are operated by TCL (www.tcl.fr), which has information offices dispensing transport maps at major metro stations throughout Lyon. Public transport runs from around 5am to midnight.

Tickets valid for all forms of public transport cost €1.90 (€16.90 for a carnet of 10) and are available from bus and tram drivers as well as machines at metro entrances. Tickets allowing two consecutive hours of travel after 9am or unlimited travel after 7pm cost €3, and an all-day ticket costs €5.80. Bring coins, as machines don't accept notes (or some international credit cards). Time-stamp tickets on all forms of public transport or risk a fine.

Holders of the Lyon City Card (www.lyoncitycard.com; 1/2/3/4 days adult €25/35/45/55, child €17/24/31/38) receive free unlimited access to Lyon's transport network for the duration of the card's validity.
