Car-parks and communal transport

Project "Chamonix without my car"

Chamonix is a small town which has limited car-parking capacity! In order to relieve this problem, we strongly advise runners and those accompanying them to park their vehicles at their lodging or in the big free car-parks on the outskirts of Chamonix.
They can then make use of the regular public transport to reach their destination, in particular:

  • the Centre Sportif, Chamonix, for the race-bib distribution
  • the Place du Triangle de l’Amitié for the start of the PTL®, or UTMB® and for the end of all the races.

This transport is free with a "carte d’hôte"! (see paragraph "Free public transport" above)

The start of the TDS®, OCC & CCC®

The organisation is putting on special shuttle buses to the Place du Mont-Blanc for the departure of the organisations’ buses for:

  • the start of the TDS® in Courmayeur
  • the start of the OCC in Orsières
  • the start of the CCC® in Courmayeur

Free shuttle buses to the town centre

Use the free "Mulets" (shuttle buses) to reach the different areas of the race easily and circulate freely in the town centre.

You may also call the "Mulet des Hameaux", a transport service upon request, which gives you the possibility of moving between outlying urban areas (not served by the urban routes) to Chamonix town centre (upon reservation).

Free public transport (Train & Bus)

You, as a privileged visitor in the Mont-Blanc Pays, may also benefit from using the urban Chamonix bus service (excluding the night service) and the SNCF train between Servoz and Vallorcine simply by presenting your carte d’hôte. If you are staying in one of the communes, ask for one at your accommodation, if not ask for one from one of the race information points in Chamonix.

Chamonix is a small town. The Chamonix (SNCF) railway station is 5 minutes walk from the town centre and the start and finish area and 10 minutes from the Centre Sportif where there is the race-bib distribution (see map).

Parking is authorized at the Grepon car-park, but it is forbidden elsewhere.
