BUS STATION IN MOUTIERS
Our buses drop and pick up our customers from the main bus station in Moutiers, the “Gare Routiere”. Our airport shuttle buses to Geneva (GVA), Grenoble (GNB) and Lyon (LYS) Airports usually drop you off at and pick you up from Bay Number 4. On Saturdays, the bus station becomes extremely busy, so sometimes we have to use other bays. The best thing to do is to keep an eye on all the buses coming into the coach station. If in doubt, just ask a driver or a member of the bus station staff if that is your bus. The TV screens may show our buses but this cannot be 100% relied upon.
