The regular train btwn the two cities should be back in service by then. There are hourly replacement buses now that your rail ticket covers. That's all I needed when I was there 3 days ago but I thi I there are also frequent local buses. The bus ride is about an hour. The bus costs 1.5 euro each way. Hardly a factor.

Bear in mind that St Gervais is not the same place at St Gervais-Le Fayet where the train station is. Some areas are quite a way away (several kilometers up a steep hill)

So I would check the location of your planned accomodation carefully on Google maps. If it's near the thermal baths, you are fine, but if it's up in the main village, it's not close at all to the station.

There is a shuttle but I think it's for disabled people rather than the general public?


As far as I know there is no public transport up there in summer. I could well be wrong, and it might be worth checking this with the St Gervais tourist office. There may be a daily bus, but I can find no mention of it on their site.

Here is a link for the SAT bus timetable which operates the local public service, bear in mind that the service doesn't run every day & the 15th August is a public holiday sat-montblanc.com/fr/…ChamonixPraz_Ete.pdf
