Air-rail links are made simple with Lyon Saint-Exupéry International Airport's TGV high-speed train station, as well as the highly developed TGV network and freeway system. The urban transport network consists of over 100 bus lines, two funiculars, four metro lines and two tramway lines. Tickets can be used across all modes of transport.
