Is there a bus to serve your train? Here's our analysis
This season we researched the connections between the arrival and departure times of popular trains to Bourg St Maurice and whether, for each of these trains, there was a convenient bus connection - or even any bus possible at all. The results surprised us, in terms of how badly co-ordinated the buses are with the arrial of trains. In many cases there is not convenient bus connection, so the only option is a taxi transfer.

*e: given that the Eurostar Ski Train officially requires at least 60 minutes check in time at Bourg, then on paper this is cutting it fine. In practice, it might be fine, but it's a bit of a risk.
f* this is the last bus from Sainte Foy ski resort to Bourg St Maurice.
As a result of the lack of co-ordination between the buses and the trains, we are trying to help skiers to share taxis - see section below.
Like to share a taxi?
If you would like to share a taxi, we are pioneering a transfer matching service, to put singles, couples and small groups of skiers who are travelling to the same destination on the same train on the same date, in touch with each other.
So if you would like to share a taxi in order to save money and help the environment, go to Shared-station-to-resort-transfers.
