Using Serre Chevalier’s ski buses

  • first bus 06:32 (from Briançon Prorel) and 7:03 (from Monêtier Pré Chabert)
  • last bus 22:02 (from Briançon Prorel) and 22:33 (from Monêtier Pré Chabert)
  • buses come every 15 minutes, 30 minutes, hour, … all depends on the time of day!
  • full schedule 15-21 December 2018 and 8-22 April 2019 is here
  • full schedule 22 December 2018 – 7 April 2019 is here

IMPORTANT: Since winter 2017/18, Serre Chevalier’s ski bus is payable (editor’s note: we don’t agree with this, it has to be the only payable ski bus in the French Alps! ) The tarifs can be viewed here, where you can also pre-order your bus tickets e.g. day tickets, week tickets, month-long tickets… or tickets for the whole winter season.

If you want a single journey ticket (2€ adults, 1€ children 6-11 years old), a book of ten tickets (15€), a senior price, a free child ticket (for under six years old) … the list is endless… you can view where to buy these here. Worth noting that you can jump on the bus and pay the driver if buying a single ticket or requesting a free ticket for a child BUT you can only pay in cash! What a palaver – as you can tell we aren’t impressed!

Village shuttles
