E-bike Mont Blanc

Between Italy and France in e-bike

The ‘E-bike Mont-Blanc’ project has as its main objective the sustainable enhancement of Mont Blanc’s natural and cultural heritage.

The chosen strategy is to develop routes suitable for e-bike use in a respectful and sustainable manner on both sides of Mont Blanc, involving local operators and companies.
In addition to enhancing and developing the e-bike offer, a new summer transport service specifically for e-bikes has been activated between Courmayeur and Chamonix, with free shuttles, bookable via app, equipped with suitable bike racks.

From Tuesday to Saturday, from 21 June to 31 August, excluding the week of Ferragosto (bank holiday), it will be possible to go from one side of the border to the other, to cycle over a much wider area.
The shuttle service will operate at the following times:

  • Chamonix – FR side Tunnel Platform (Monday to Saturday)
    08:15, 09:45, 18:15, 19:15
  • Courmayeur – Piazzale Funivie Val Veny (Monday through Saturday)
    09:00, 10:30, 17:30, 18:30
