Lyon to Dijon by train

Heading north Dijon is the closest city to Lyon, but the distance between them is more than 230 kilometers.
So if you can plan in advance and book ahead, taking a TGV can be a good option.
It'll be faster, despite spending most of its journey on conventional tracks, and can be cheaper too.
Though if you'd rather book last minute at the station, taking a slower TER train will be a money saver.
