Lyon's railway stations

Want to take the train 🚂 from Lyon? Or you're arriving in Lyon by train but you don't know how to find the station 🚉 you're arriving at? Which railway station is closest to you? Then this article is for you!

First of all, there are several options to get to Lyon from another French or European city. The first is by bus 🚌 or train 🚆. Spiky recommends the Trainline comparator, which gives you access to cheaper fares than the SNCF! Second option: carpooling. You can use Blablacar.

The Lyon Metropolitan Area is made up of 59 communes, almost all of which have a station, but we're not going to show you them all: here are the 3 main stations (Gare Part-Dieu, Gare de Perrache, Gare de Lyon Saint-Exupéry TGV), followed by 6 other local stations accessible by metro 🚇
