Transport around Lyon

We will be staying in Lyon for 3 days. We fly to Saint-Exupéry arriving mid morning and need to get to the Warwick Reine Astrid hotel.

We will be seeing the sights of the city, but not travelling out of it during our stay.

Is anyone able to recommend the best combination of transport tickets for our stay. Is there a travelcard equivalent that would do us, or do wee need to buy individual tickets?

We intend to buy a Lyoncard. I believe you can buy these at stations?

Thanks in advance for you advice

One day ticket for all the means of public transportation costs 4.90 euros, but you probably won't need it as the price for Lyon City Card already includes unlimited access to public transport. I doubt you can buy this card at the stations or the airport. You can definetely purchase the card at the tourist office on the Bellecour square. Or maybe your hotel has it on sale. If not here's the list of other places you can buy it - …lyon-france.com/Lyon-City-Card/Where-to-buy…

Getting from the airport to your hotel will be slightly more complicated right now as the RhoneExpress tram service is suspended and instead they have a bus, that only goes to Part Dieu. From there you'll have to take the C1 bus, which will pass very near your hotel.

Thank you for telling me this... especially about the RhoneExpress tram service!

It is better to find out now than when we get there in a few days time! Something like that can spoil a holiday if you don't know about it in advance.
