Lyon City Card

by elise_crash Online Now Apr 23, 2009 at 8:43 PM

A few questions about the card:

1. How much is the card if you buy it when you get in the city, as opposed to before hand online? The website says there is an online discount.

2. The card says you get unlimited free use of public transportation. Does this include funiculars and/or velo'v bicycles?

3. Has anybody used this card to take a free river cruise? If so, how long was the cruise? Did you enjoy it? Can you also take nighttime cruises, or only those during the day? And, can you use the card to take more than one free cruise (like you can do with the museums)?

4. If you buy as a student online, do you have to prove you are a student when you turn in your confirmation at the tavel bureau? If so, will a student ID from a US school work? Or, do you need to have an International Student ID?

Thank you so much for any help you can offer!

Happy travels!

Lisa

    Hi Lisa,
    about velo'v , the first 30 minutes are always free; so, it's very easy to jump from one free bicycle to another! you can buy a short use card for as low as 1 euro to avoid the deposit requested if you are usijng a normal credit card
    here's the english link:

    enjou your stay in our city!
    Cheers
