If you’ve come by train or by car and don’t want to drive in the mountains, you can reach Les Arcs from the Bourg-Saint-Maurice railway station in just 7 minutes!

After 3 years of construction our Savoyard metro saw the light of day and carried its first passengers in February 1989. The only one in France, this aerial funicular enables you to reach the ski area from the valley in next to no time. It is accessible from the railway station in Bourg-Saint-Maurice courtesy of a footbridge located at the end of the platforms.


The funicular arrives in Arc 1600. If your accommodation is in another part of the resort such as Arc 1800, 1950 or 2000, make use of the free bus service which connects each location.


To board the funicular, you must be in possession of a ticket. Tickets can be purchased at the funicular ticket office in Bourg-Saint-Maurice or the automatic ticket machines at the departure point. If you already have a currently valid lift pass, use of the funicular is included.

Departures are every 20 minutes, every day from 7.30 am to 8.00 pm, and until 9.00 pm on Saturday. There are request stops in Montrigon and Les Granges. Make sure you tell the driver that you want to stop there.

To mark les Arcs’ 50th anniversary, the funicular has been updated in style. Since the summer of 2019, the existing funicular has given way to a more modern train fitted with large panoramic windows. Passengers will be able to enjoy an exceptional view over the mountains and the valley as the train climbs uphill.

Our metro premises are continuing their metamorphosis for the winter of 2019-2020 with a complete renovation of the station in Bourg-Saint-Maurice. The renovation work being carried out will enable passengers to wait under cover in the event of bad weather.
