Lyon Train Station

I'm flying from Rome to Lyon on Easy Jet, and then taking the train from Lyon Part Dieu to Montpellier. Is Lyon Part Dieu in the Lyon airport??? If not, how do I get there. BTW, the english version of the Lyon Airport web site is under construction.

Lyon Part Dieu is the city center. Airport is about 5 miles to the southeast.

Sorry it's actually 25km, or about 15 miles SE of Lyon.

The airport has a TGV station (Lyon St-Exupery) , but no direct train back to Lyon Part Dieu or to Montpellier.

The timetable for the bus can be downloaded here, from the airport's French language site:

Thanks! Looks like the bus departs every 20 minutes, takes about 1/2 hour, and costs about $12.

The bus can take a bit longer than 1/2 hour if traffic is busy, so bear that in mind if you have a train to catch. But it's certainly the easiest and cheapest way to get to Part-Dieu from the airport.
