Getting around
in HMV

From or to Modane SNCF station

The Haute Maurienne Vanoise transport network is structured around two main lines :
– The line S52 Modane – Val Cenis Lanslebourg via Aussois
– The lineS53 Modane – Bonneval sur Arc.

These lines take you to discover the Haute Maurienne Vanoise and its villages. They serve the “transversal” lines that allow you to access the resorts and the many exceptional sites of our territory.

They are usually in connection, be attentive!

Present yourself at the stop 5 minutes before the indicated time.

⚠ For these 2 lines, we strongly advise you to buy your ticket in advance, especially if you travel on Saturday. This will allow you to reserve your seat.

    Permanent Lines

    The lines below run continuously during the summer season (refer to the timetables in the mobility guide).
    S52 : Modane – Val Cenis Lanslebourg
    S53 : Modane – Bonneval sur Arc
    line 4: Val Cenis Bramans – Val Cenis Termignon – Bellecombe – Entre- Deux-Eaux
    line 5: Bessans – Avérole
    line 7: Bonneval – L’Écot

    Together, to take it easy…

    You’re in the mountains. In difficult traffic conditions, lines may be delayed. We do our best to provide you with the best service, but we also count on your cooperation!

    – To improve the flow of traffic, prepare your change or your ticket before getting on

    Bonneval sur Arc: access by bus to the hamlet of Ecot

    Bonneval sur Arc <-> L’Ecot

    L’Ecot, the hamlet of Bonneval sur Arc, is a must-see in Haute Maurienne Vanoise. Houses with lauze roofs, chapel, view on the glaciers… L’Ecot has everything of the postcard. That’s why the hamlet was chosen to be Sebastien’s village for the movies “Belle et Sebastien”. It is also the starting point for many hikes to the Cirque des Evettes, the Grand Méan glacier, the Carro refuge…

    The site is now very busy in summer. The access, then the parking, to the hamlet of Ecot has therefore been rethought.
    In order to regulate attendance and organize parking, a shuttle (line 7) was set up between the village of Bonneval sur Arc and the hamlet of Ecot from July 10 to August 20 every day except Saturday.
    Access to the Ecot hamlet by private car is still possible*, but parking is now charged.

    No bike transportation
    Dogs are not allowed

    *Vehicle access subject to availability.

    Ecot parking access rates

    • Fee for 1 hour: 1€ (i.e. 0,25€/15 minutes).
    • Day rate (from 7 to 28 hours) : 7,00€
    • Long term parking(Beyond 28 hours), see rates directly on site.
      (Example: 30€ for 4 days of parking).
