Chamonix Bus Timetables 2015 PDF Format & Chamonix Bus System

Last Updated:

Chamonix has a bus system which runs up and down the Valley and serves the various ski resorts and hiking areas. All lines start at the Chamonix Sud Bus Stop and make a circuit in Chamonix Town.

There is a year-round service and a winter season service. In high season, there is rarely a waiting time longer than 20 minutes. Normally heavy snowfall is not a problem for the buses, as they are well equipped. On the other hand, when it snows a lot in Chamonix the roads can get pretty messy for cars, some of which may be lacking the proper equipment, and the high volume of cars raises the pollution levels, so leave your car at home and take advantage of this free bus service.
All year round, five lines are served, including le Mulet - the town centre free mini-bus.

01 : Les Houches - Chamonix - Les Grands Montets - Le Tour
02 : Les Bossons - Chamonix, Les Praz/La Flegere
03 : Les Pelerins - Chamonix
04 : Le Mulet Town Centre Free Mini Bus
05 : Servoz - Les Houches - Chamonix

In winter, the bus network is supplemented to meet an increased tourist demand, reaching a total of twelve lines:

21 : Chamonix - Les Praz/ Flegere - Les Grands Montets
24 : Le Grépon - Chamonix - Le Brévent
25 : Le Grépon - Chamonix - Les Houches - Le Prarion

  • Two other bicycle lines:

V1 : Chamonix - Les Praz/Flegere - Le Tour
V2 : Chamonix - Les Bossons - Les Houches

There is also a Night Bus in the winter season (no Night Bus in the off season). Trips cost: €2.


Travel during the day is free with a "Carte d'Hôte", "Gens du Pays" or ski pass. Ask your hotel/apartment/chalet provider for a "Carte d'Hôte" card (this is partially what the nightly tourist tax covers). If you do not have a valid card, the ticket price for each passage is €1.50.

Here is a Summary of bus lines to the ski areas.

In high season, the waiting time for the bus is rarely more than 20 minutes, but it is best to consult the schedule.
