Auxerre is quite easily reached by rail from Gare Paris-Bercy by one of seven direct trains from Paris-Bercy daily (leaving roughly every 2 hours from 6:13 am to 8:38 pm). The fare is €26.40. Five trains a day put Sermizelles-Vézelay (€7.90) less than one hour away, where you can take either a taxi (03–86–32–31–88) during the week or the noon-only Saturday bus service to connect to Vézelay proper. Thirteen daily trains link Auxerre to Montbard (€17), mostly via Laroche-Migennes, with Dijon at the end of the line (€26.70). The TransYonne bus network (Les Rapides de Bourgogne) links Auxerre to Sens, Avallon, and Tonnerre with a daily service. Chablis can be reached daily at 11:45 am, 4:15 pm (both on request only 0800–303–309), and 5:55 pm by bus from the SNCF station.
If you're driving, Auxerre is served by several major arteries, including the A6 autoroute (Autoroute of the Sun) and the N6 (National 6).
