Getting to Les Arc 1950

I was wondering if you could tell if there is a bus service that runs into Les Arc 1950 for the Chambery Airport. I arrive on a Monday and fly out on a Saturday. Thank you.

There doesn’t look to be any transfers on Mondays from the Chambery Airport to Les Arc 1950. There is for your return on Saturday. TRANS SAVOIE is the company running the bus service. The listed transfer price is 40€ for a single and 70€ for a return. I’m not to sure what your solutions are for a Monday transfer. A private transfer is over 250€ and a taxi would cost about 180€ to 200€.
The only other solution I can think of, is taking a train from Chambery to Bourg St Maurice. You would need to take a taxi to the Chambery train station, cost about 20€. Then you get the train to Bourg St Maurice. The trips takes about 2 hours and there is a train at 6.30 pm or 7.10pm, the cost is about 15€. Then from Bourg St Maurice there is a shuttle to Les Arc 1950. Not sure of the price. For the train you don’t need to make a reservation, you can buy the day you travel. But if you want more information please see Voyages Sncf UK.
