I booked a TGV from Paris Gare de Lyon to Lyon Part Dieu. Can I stay on the train until it gets to the Lyon Perrache station?

I am booked on a TGV train from Paris Gare de Lyon to Lyon Part Dieu. The guidebook indicates I can stay on the train and depart at Lyon Perrache station. Is that true?

    Hi Marilyn,

    Yes, even though Lyon Part Dieu is listed as the station of arrival on your ticket, you can get off at the Perrache station in Lyon instead. All TGVs from Paris to Lyon Part Dieu will continue on to the Perrache station. These trains arrive into the Perrache station 13 to 18 minutes after they are shown to be arriving into the Part Dieu station. Rest assured, you can remain on your train until it pulls into Perrache.

  • Thank you. Can I also ask another question. We have a TGV train from Lyon Part Dieu to Avignon during our trip. Would we be able to board that train at Perrache as well?

    Hi Marilyn,

    The TGVs from Lyon to Avignon actually do not stop at the Perrache station. Therefore, in this case, you would have to use public transit or taxi to commute to Part Dieu, where you would board your train.

    If you'll be staying near Perrache, you can take a local regional train or the T1 (tram) to get from Perrache to Part Dieu. The regional trains from Perrache to Part Dieu take just under 10 minutes, while the tram would take about 20 to 25 minutes.
