European Rail Travel - Lyon Part Dieu Transfer Time?
Looking at a transfer between trains of 24 minutes at Lyon Part Dieu. Having trouble finding a station map.
I know that 24 minutes in most stations is an eternity to make a transfer...but is 24 minutes sufficient at Lyon Part Dieu?
TVG train to TER train
Nothing but hand baggage to carry.

this is no problem at all, on arrival just check for the departure screens. platforms are usually announced 20min prior to departure - so you'll be just fine. sometimes they make announcements in the TGV, but this information is not as reliable as the departure screens in the train station.
hope this helps :)

You should be fine with 24 minutes to change trains, just so long as there isn't a delay. The tracks are all parallel to each other, and there are stairs descending into a central connecting hall at street level. Also, if you miss your connection then you should be able to get on a later train the same day without problems (or fees). Ask at the ticket office if you're not sure; it's big enough that the usually have at least one person who can speak English on duty.
