Bus services in Chamonix

Discover and book Chamonix bus services


Chamonix has an excellent bus network covering the length of the valley, from Servoz to Vallorcine. This means that you really don't need your car once you're in resort.

There's a regular bus service between Les Houches and Le Tour that runs daily throughout the year. Buses run from approximately 07:00 to 20:00.

There are additional buses during the summer, including buses with racks for mountain bikes.

It's free to travel on most buses in Chamonix if you have a valid lift pass or a guest card (carte d'hote). Ask your chalet host or hotel reception for one of these.

There's a small charge of €2 for the night bus.

Buses during the off-season

Buses normally operate a reduced timetable between:

  • mid-April and early June
  • mid-September and early December

This usually means one bus an hour, rather than every 30 minutes.

If you want to travel on the Chamo'nuit night bus during the off-season, you'll need to book at least 24 hours in advance. Book by 4pm:

  • the day before, for travel between Tuesday and Friday
  • on Friday if you want to travel Saturday, Sunday or Monday
