To further facilitate the arrival of newcomers to Lyon, This Is Lyon publishes its first Welcome Pocket Pass. A 20-page guide to getting by on public transit.

Since its launch in 2017, This Is Lyon, the city’s first English-speaking website, has set itself the objective of making life easier for newcomers, tourists, expatriates and students by publishing news and events with the editorial line “Visit Lyon, Live Lyon”. 

Today, more than 25,000 readers trust us every month to guide them and inform them about Lyon.

We have decided to go above and beyond by publishing our first Welcome Pocket Pass dedicated to transport in Lyon.This 20-page PDF, available for only 3 euros, offers over 80 tips and tricks, as well as maps to help newcomers get by on public transport in Lyon.

Should I take a taxi or the Rhônexpress shuttle to get from the airport to the city centre? Or should I take a cheaper taxi from the Part-Dieu station? At what hour should I avoid taking the funicular to Fourvière? How do I use a Vélo'V? How does the bus transit work?

These are a few examples of the many questions answered in this document, produced by locals, to guide newcomers when they arrive in Lyon.Feel free to download!
