Long Description:
The station was constructed in 1978 as part of the new Part-Dieu urban neighborhood project. As the planners intended Part-Dieu to act as a second city center for Lyon, the large rail station was built in conjunction with a shopping mall (the largest in France), a major government office complex, and the tallest skyscraper in the region, nicknamed le crayon (the pencil) due to its shape.

The station is served by France's high-speed rail service, TGV, in addition to regional TER trains.

Lyon Part-Dieu has direct access to Line B of the Lyon Metro, providing easy access to Lyon's centre ville (center city) and Vieux Lyon (historic district). Outside the station, the Metro's T1 and T3 trams also stop.
