Our tips to make your shuttle experience easier

Before the competition

When you board your shuttle, remember the stop number for your return.

For the access to the stadium, follow the path to the different checkpoints. In order to make this compulsory passage as fluid as possible, please :

  • prepare your health pass,
  • open your bags for the security check. As a reminder, here is the stadium access policy,
  • prepare your ticket.

 

After the competition

For those who wish, a stop at the spectator tent will allow you to continue to live the festive atmosphere of the World Cup and will spread out the wave of the return shuttles.

To reach one of the four shuttle loading docks (Interstation-Le Chinaillon-Entremont-Thônes) and for your return to be as quick as possible, please follow the volunteers’ instructions. Take the lanes provided to lead you to your loading dock, on the Place de la Grenette next to the Hotel “La Croix Saint Maurice”. This will be the only way to reach your shuttle. The whole village is cordoned off and locked in order to make the return trip well organized, fluid and fast.
