Lyon, the capital city in France’s Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, sits at the junction of the Rhône and Saône rivers. Its center reflects 2,000 years of history from the Roman Amphithéâtre des Trois Gaules, medieval and Renaissance architecture in Vieux (Old) Lyon, to the modern Confluence district on Presqu'île peninsula.
Alpybus offer private & a fixed line to Lyon throughout the year. Discover our timetable here.
Arrivals from Geneva
For your transfer from Geneva Airport we will assign you to the earliest transfer an hour after your flight arrival to allow you to pass through passport control and collect your luggage. Upon booking your transfer you will be given an ESTIMATED time of your transfer. This time will be confirmed to you the day before travel.
At the busy times of the season your transfer from the airport might be done from a coach, then with the final part of your transfer being done by a shuttle bus to take you to your final destination.
Travelling with a standard ticket?
If you miss your transfer, you can be assigned to the next available transfer by paying the “Rescue fee”.
Departures from Lyon
For your pick up from Lyon you will be given an ESTIMATED time of pick up at the point of booking based on the flight time you give. This will be confirmed the morning before travel and could be adjusted. We pick up from several locations for each transfer, so your pick up time will be adjusted depending on where you are in the order of pick ups. We endeavour to get you to the airport 2 hours before your flight.

Your shared transfer will be operated in a coach
We know some of you are not big fans of travelling in a coach. However, to offer the best service to each of our passengers and avoid long hours of waiting at the airport, it is the best solution.
Plus they are environmentally friendly. Coaches are among the cleanest, greenest vehicles on our roads, with average carbon dioxide emissions per passenger per journey being around 5 times lower than air travel and 6 times lower than car travel.
Baby seats are not mandatory in coaches in France and Switzerland.
Upon booking, you will be given an estimated time of pickup, either from the airport or from your resort. This is then confirmed the day before travel.
From the airport we schedule your departure between 45 mins and 1hr 15 mins from your flight arrival, depending on the number of passengers, luggage, day of the week etc.
For departures from your resort to the airport, we aim to get you to the airport 2 hours before your flight. As a private customer, you can adjust this time as you like, and we will do our best to accommodate you depending on our schedule for that day.
This journey time is estimated for a car. Journey time might vary depending on many factures.
