The TCL provides an important network of subways, trams and buses in Lyon and surroundings. The easiest way to reach the campus is to use the tram lines T1 and T4, and get off at the stop 'Gaston Berger'. You can also use the buses C2, C26 and 70 which stop near the university, although you will have to walk a bit more.
