How do I get to Le Puy?

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Landing in Paris? 

From Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) to Le Puy-en-Velay

    CDG airport               LYON-Part-Dieu 

    Lyon Part-Dieu      St Etienne 

    St-Etienne         Le Puy en Velay

 

From CDG Airport you take a TGV train directly to Lyon Part-Dieu train station. You then transfer to a regional train to St Etienne where you catch a third and last regional train to Le Puy en Velay.

 

    Sounds complicated?   It really isn’t!

 

The connection at St Etienne is very easy: you literally hop off the train , cross the platform where your train to Le Puy will be waiting for you (or arriving very soon).

 

 

 

From Paris city

to Le Puy-en-Velay, you have 2 options.

 

1.    You take the train in Paris from Gare de Lyon train station and go directly to St Etienne. From there you catch a regional train to Le Puy en Velay. 

     From Paris Gare de Lyon to Le Puy-en-Velay

    Gare de Lyon               St Etienne 

    St-Etienne         Le Puy en Velay

 

 

2.    You take the train in Paris from Gare de Lyon train station and go to Lyon Part-Dieu. From there you catch a regional train to Saint-Etienne and a second regional train from Saint-Etienne to Le Puy en Velay.

     Paris Gare de Lyon             LYON-Part-Dieu 

    Lyon Part-Dieu      St Etienne 

    St-Etienne         Le Puy en Velay

 

Why choose this second option when the first one is “more direct”?

 

There are a LOT more trains going from Paris to Lyon than directs to Saint-Etienne. 

 

Landing in Lyon (LYS) ?

 

Take the “Rhône Express shuttle” !  

It takes 30 min to go from the airport to Lyon Part-Dieu train station. From there you’ll take a regional train to Saint-Etienne and then another regional train from Saint-Etienne to Le Puy-en-Velay.
