Our bus stop is at the only bus station in Bourg d’Oisans, the VFD Gare Routiere. It is very close to the town centre and there is shelter at the bus station.
When we think the airport will be busy, we allow more time, but generally we allow 45 minutes for customers to clear Passport Control and Baggage Reclaim.
If you are delayed, we can wait for you but we may not be able to wait longer than 15 minutes after your bus’ scheduled departure time. After that, provided there is space, you can travel on our next service, if there is one, for free. We leave empty seats on all our services for exactly this reason.
We monitor flight arrival times so you don’t need to contact us if you are delayed. Our team will be busy trying to accommodate you on another service. Or they may be holding the bus back. On Saturdays, when you come out of Arrivals, just find our rep and they will update you. On other days, please call the number on your eTicket.
The journey between Lyon Airport and Bourg d’Oisans takes about 1 hour 40 minutes in normal traffic. If you are going to arrange onward transport to your final destination, just give the taxi company your Ben’s Bus departure time from Lyon Airport. They will then suggest how to co-ordinate the changeover with you on the day.

For your journey back to the airport, we allow more time when we know the travelling conditions may be bad, such as during the school holidays or at certain times of the day. Our buses need to pass along the Grenoble ring road and at rush hour on weekdays, we allow extra time for this.
