These buses may then pass via Grenoble Airport to pick up passengers there. This is only a small detour and does not add a significant amount of time to the overall journey. Please select the option below to read more about our service. If you cannot find the information you are looking for below, we may have it on our Lyon Airport Ski Transfer Questions page.

If our bus times do not suit your flight times, you could get to Bourg d’Oisans using a hire care or book a private transfer. A cheaper alternative is to use the Lyon Airport Shuttle to Grenoble and then change to get the public bus. Don’t forget, you could still book a Single with Ben’s Bus for one leg of your journey and an alternative method for the other leg.
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.
