Does Gare D'Austerlitz connect to Gare D'Lyon ?

Will be coming in to Gare D'Austerlitz and switching to a TGV train at Gare D'Lyon. Checking on a map I see they are just across the river from each other. Is there a connecting passageway? Or is it the easiest thing to just hop in a taxi?

Hi b,

The easiest way is by cab.

You can also take the metro or the bus.

There are no underground tunnels under the Seine. However, you can walk above ground, if that's what you want to do. There is a bridge over the Seine right at that point (bridge Charles de Gaulle).

As Christina has said you can walk it or as Ira has noted you can take a cab. We did it once via cab and the driver was not thrilled to be going such a "short" distance but she didn't seem to mind the big tip I added..her face brightened up considerably.

A taxi is most convenient. With bags, next most is bus number 57, from Gare d?Austerlitz over the river and up the ramp to Gare de Lyon. The metro goes only a third of the way, to Quai de la Rapee, unless you go two stops to the Bastille, change, and go one stop to Gare de Lyon, a long way round.
