Getting to Longeval
We encourage ridesharing! If you are coming to Longeval by car and can offer a ride to others or if you would like to find someone who can offer you a lift, please add your name to this schedule. Alternatively, you can also consider sharing a taxi from Lyon Saint-Exupéry Airport. A sign-up sheet for this can be found on the same schedule.

The cheapest option to reach us from this airport is to get the Lyon ExpressTram. Check schedules and ticket prices on their website. The tram will take you to Lyon Part-Dieu station in 30 minutes. From there, you can catch a train/bus combination (morning departures only) to Domaine de Longeval or, in the afternoon, take a short train ride or tram from outside the station (Line T1, direction Lebourg departing every 10mins) to Lyon Perrache for the afternoon train/bus departures (see below).

Big bus companies (Euroline, Megabus, etc.) link Lyon to Paris and other major European cities (Torino, Barcelona, Geneva, Zurich, Frankfurt, etc.).
Buses usually arrive at Lyon Perrache or Lyon Part-Dieu train stations. From these stations, you can get a combination of train and bus to get to Domaine de Longeval (see below).
Lyon has two train stations, Lyon Part-Dieu and Lyon Perrache. Both of them have connections to Chambost-Allières, a village near Longeval.
