Best way to get from Lyon Airport to Hotel

I'll be flying into Lyon in April. According to Google maps, my hotel is a 20 minute walk or a 10 minute car ride from Gare Part-Dieu (the main train station.) I would love some advice on the best way to get to my hotel from the airport. I'm assuming that there is public transportation between the airport and the train station, or some type of airport shuttle. Maybe then, a cab or Uber to the hotel? I'm open to suggestions. Thanks.

1. Taxi will cost around 50 euros before 19.00, 70-75 euros after.

2. RhonExpress speed tram will take you to Part-Dieu for 16 euros per person.

3. Car sharing service bla bla car - 3-6 euros per person. You have to adjust to their schedule and normally only one standard piece of luggage per person allowed.

The Rhone Express connects up with the Metro system. There is probably a metro stop closer to your hotel than the 20 minute walk/ 10 minute ride from the Part Dieu station. Depending upon the metro line that you need to take, you may want to get off the Rhone express at the Vaulx-en-Velin stop, which is before Part Dieu. Here is a link to the official Rhone Express website, https://www.rhonexpress.fr/en

Thanks so much. I didn't know the name of the shuttle service - so this will make it much easier.
