Vaujany is a satellite resort of Alpe d’Huez, connected by ski pistes but not by road. Ben’s Bus transfers from Lyon Airport will drop you at Rochetaillee. This is a small village on the valley floor where the road splits to go to Alpe d’Huez and Vaujany. From here you can catch connecting taxis and buses for the short trip up to Vaujany. We also have a stop at Bourg d’Oisans. Our transfers from Lyon Airport operate every Saturday and some Sundays.
You can find more details about how to get from these stops to Vaujany and on what dates we operate in the sections below. If you’re flying into Grenoble Airport (GNB), visit our Grenoble Airport to Vaujany page.

On WEEKDAYS, you have the option of public transport, a private transfer or a hire car. Visit this page of our website to see what we recommend.

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 Rochetaillee takes about 1 hour 50 minutes in normal traffic. The journey from Rochetaillee to Vaujany in a taxi is a further 25 minutes. To co-ordinate a swift changover, give the taxi driver your Ben’s Bus departure time from Lyon Airport. They will then suggest how to communicate 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.
