Public transportation: evening/night bus in August

I've seen that the (free) night bus only operates in winter season. Are there any means of public transportation in the valley in August at nights? Or the only way to get from, let's say, Chamonix to Les Houches, in late evening is taxi or rental car?

Ridiculously, there is now no late night transport in Summer. Taxis are very expensive but some of the transfer companies offer evening services which you can prebook. Still not cheap though. Cycling is also an option and you can rent a bike much more cheaply than a car...

If you felt like emailing the tourist office to ask if there's any plans to have some, please do.


Or perhaps you might have some more joy on Facebook


Considering that the valley is actually busier in August than at new year, it's laughable.

I agree with Firebug, but in summer most visiters are day trippers on coaches but it really is a bugger that there is nothing along the valley after 20:00.

Taxi or drive yourself is it.

Link to the bus timetable , only the #1 runs to Les Houches.

However, moan over, there are quite a few decent places to eat in Les Houches so it is not all bad.
