Driving in and around Lyon

Key routes

Lyon is bisected by a number of major roads and a grid system of smaller ones, enabling drivers to quickly get around the numerous attractions of the city. Many of the roads in Lyon pass through attractive squares such as Place Carnot and La Place Ampere.

Rue la Boetie is over nine metres wide and is the main route from Rue d’Angouleme through Lyon’s shopping district.

Rue Alibert is an extension of the Rue Dieu and crosses the Canal Saint-Martin.

The Rue Lanterne is an historic route flanked by old wooden houses whose ancient traboule or passageway is only open for major city events.

Major Highways

The A42 autoroute is a relatively short motorway just outside Lyon, connecting the city with the A40 motorway to the north. It’s useful for avoiding heavy rush hour traffic. Bear a few things in mind when using this and other roads in the Lyon area:

• Wait until you leave the autoroute to fill up the tank, as prices are cheaper at the intersections.
• Most autoroutes in France are toll motorways, marked as ‘Peage’ and you pick a ticket from a booth as you enter, paying the toll when you leave.
• There are also a number of free motorways and it’s theoretically possible, but not economically practical, to drive across the country using only free toll routes.
• The police often check tickets at toll road exits, so keep yours handy somewhere in your vehicle, just in case.
• You can be fined for speeding on the spot, and you’ll have to pay in cash. If you’re driving in excess of 25km per hour above the maximum your car can be impounded and you could lose your licence.
