Paris to Avignon by train

There are three options for taking a high speed train from Paris to Avignon:
The less frequent services which arrive at Avignon-Centre station, which lives up to its name with a central location; and the two options for taking trains to Avignon TGV station - the regular TGV InOui services and the lower cost, but more basic, Ouigo services.

Avignon TGV station is located to the south of the town, but it is on the high speed line, so the trains which call there don't have to divert off the high speed route, so they're faster than those to Avignon Centre.

Avignon TGV is connected to the heart of the town by local TER trains which call at Avignon Centre, but if the timings of those don't suit, buses are also available.
