Don't Get Confused. There's more than one

There are three Chamonix Bus services and you'll need to visit the three different sites depending on where you'd like to go. There's the local, inter-town and long distance bus operators.

This is a photo of the main train station at Chamonix-Mont-Blanc.  All buses and trains will stop here and the large tarmac'd area directly in front of the main entrance to the station, is the main departure point for most transport.

This is also where you'll catch the transport to Courmayer - you can't miss the milling throngs of skiers waiting for the scheduled transport.

The Local Chamonix Bus:

Chamonix Bus operates the local buses that ply the resort including the little eco bus, the Mulet.   Click here for the link to their schedules lines in English:

Besides the regular annual schedule, there is also a special winter timetable which includes the night bus.

The Regional Bus
