Access Information for Disabled Supporters
Getting there and Parking
The nearest international airport to Lyon is Lyon-Saint-Exupéry airport, 7km from the stadium.
Tel. +33 (0)825 108 208
Travel assistance for disabled passengers must be booked at least 48 hours before departure, via the relevant airline or travel agent.
Accessible parking spaces can be found in car parks P0, P1, P2 and P4.
For more information, visit: www.lyonaeroports.com/eng/Access-maps-car-parks
The airport has large automatic doors, spacious lifts and accessible toilets. Call points are available if you would like assistance.
An accessible tram service (Rhônexpress) connects the airport to the main SNCF railway station in Lyon (Part-Dieu) in less than 30 minutes. It runs every day, including public holidays, from 04.25 until midnight.
Price: €15.80 (single)
From the airport, disabled supporters should take the Rhonexpress to Meyzieu and then tram T3 to the stadium.
Lyon's main railway station is Part-Dieu station, 2km from the city centre. However, Lyon also has two other railway stations: the TGV station at Lyon-Saint-Exupéry and Lyon-Perrache station.
TGV and intercity trains on the French national network have two wheelchair spaces. For more information, visit: www.sncf.com/en/services/handicap/information-booking

Getting a Ticket
For information about buying a ticket, please contact the club directly or visit their website. (French version only).
Spectator Viewing areas
There is only one lift up to the stadium for disabled spectators arriving from the tramway, or with parking in P7. This lift accomodates 1 wheelchair user at a time. There are also sloped access routes on all sides of the stadium, but CAFE is concerned these are too steep.
There are 202 wheelchair user spaces on level 1, split across the East and West stands, with adjacent companion seats and adequate sightlines.
CAFE was informed that the club has identified 88 seats in block 30 for disabled spectators (non-wheelchair users). However, CAFE is unable to comment on these.
There are several accessible toilets located near level 1 accessible viewing areas.
Some concessions have low-level counters, but not all.
At some accessible stadium entrances, there is signage to indicate the presence of an induction loop.
