TRAINS AND OTHER AIRPORTS TO ALPE D’HUEZ
The bus service from Grenoble train station is run by a local bus company and you can find more details about this at the Transaltitude website. Ben’s Bus does not operate Les 2 Alpes transfers from Chambery, Lyon or Geneva Airports so you may wish to consider changing your flight so you arrive into Grenoble Airport as the transport options from those airports are much more expensive and time consuming than using Ben’s Bus. Click here to see a list of airlines that fly into Grenoble Airport. If you cannot change your flight, we would recommend a local private transfer company called Actibus or visit the Alpe d’Huez Tourist Office website or click on your airport above to see what advice they can offer.
