I've notice in a couple of threads that those travelling by train from Lyon to Le Puy, have mentioned they travelled LYON (PART DIEU) - SAINT ETIENNE - LE PUY.

However, there is also a train via LYON (PART DIEU) - FIRMINY - LE PUY , which has more suitable departure times (and is a slightly shorter duration).

When searching the ticketing agents (in Australia), FIRMINY departures don't exist, but they are available on the http://en.voyages-sncf.com/ site.

Has anyone travelled the LYON - FIRMINY - LE PUY option, or know of a reason why you wouldn't travel that particular route?

Bon Chemin

I've since found out that it is a bus from SAINT ETIENNE or FIRMINY.

This site is useful for recce. I would confirm it with the service provider (SNCF).
http://www.rome2rio.com/about

It shows regional train (TER) Lyon (Perrache) to Firminy, Firminy to Le Puy, Lyon to Le Puy. No mention of bus.

SNCF TER
http://www.ter-sncf.com/

Some SNCF TER trains indicate TER Car .... probably a bus.

Its normally train. If my very rusty french is correct sections of the route between Firminy and LePuy are closed for maintenance till end August 2014. A bus is in place until the tracks reopen....
Well, that explains why I thought that others said it was train to Le Puy.
Thanks for the update.
